New program for eliminating single-use plastics in councils
A new program to help local councils identify and eliminate single-use plastics from their workplaces has been published.
The Engagement for Plastic-free innovation and Change (EPIC) program was designed by Plastic Oceans Australasia (POA), and includes:
a step-by-step EPIC program manual;
access to scientific research and documentaries on plastic pollution, including the award-winning film A Plastic Ocean;
four custom workshops run by a POA facilitator;
surveys to measure and track changes in workplace plastic habits;
plastic waste audit guides and personalised analysis to produce custom data for councils;
a database of supply alternatives, including environmental and cost-friendly alternatives;
comprehensive procurement support, including unique tips for learning about and changing your procurement;
case studies and examples of plastic elimination success; and
ongoing advice and support from the POA team throughout the 12-month program.
Council wanting to take the journey towards plastic elimination with POA can register their interest at firstname.lastname@example.org
