We’re taking the WA Local Govt. advice to heart and have just started circulating a PETITION TO BAN SINGLE USE PLASTIC SHOPPING BAGS in The Shire of Mundaring. The issue will be brought to a Council meeting in mid-August so please sign to show our Councillors that there is widespread support for this within the Shire. Find them currently at Kinfolk Cafe & Leaf & Bean Cafe opp. Woollies. If you want a petition for your business or can help collecting signatures in your area, just message us here at email@example.com
Outcome of the Shire Council Meeting motion from Tues 13 Jun (to Ban Single Use Plastic Bags). The motion, as it was presented by Cr. Trish Cook at last night’s meeting was not passed, but is also NOT OVER! A new motion was formulated and the serious conversation has now begun. So start talking about it with your family, your friends, in your groups & especially important: with local businesses in the Shire.
Here is the amended motion that was made … see more

The perfect movie to motivate us for Plastic Free July (and onwards). It takes us on a journey to one of the most remote places on Earth, Midway Atoll, to uncover the truth behind the mystery of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Along the way, scientists, celebrities, legislators, and activists shed light on what our society’s vast consumption of disposable plastic is doing to our oceans, and what it may be doing to our health.
Some of us here at MiT have done this course and it’s really worthwhile. You’ll get right inside the latest info on waste and why it really matters that we all make changes! Register http://www.rgang.org.au/earthcarersregistration.html
