Single-use plastic continues to be a significant issue in our environment.... but awareness and solutions are on the rise - and you are part of it.

As well as providing education and initiatives for the community, Council has a program to support and empower businesses in moving away from single-use plastics.

The Swap for Good program includes action plans, supplier lists, resources and ongoing support.  The program's events provide collaboration opportunities for business owners and managers to share ideas and solutions. 

Swap for Good fosters a supportive network for businesses to share their experiences and stories about their journey. It's a great time for businesses to join in making the swap to sustainable practices.
