Designed to be used just once, and then thrown away, many single-use plastic items are a huge part of the growing issue of plastic waste and pollution across the world.
As of the 1st of September 2021, Queensland is outlawing the use of single-use plastics, including plastic straws and cutlery. All Queensland businesses and not-for-profit organisations will be required to stop supplying some single-use plastic items after the ban begins, including; supermarkets, cafes, hotels, and takeaway food shops. However, certain businesses can still supply banned plastic items after the ban has started to ensure that Queenslanders with a disability or healthcare needs can still access them if necessary.
