Trained as a marine scientist, Chad feels lucky to have a job the directly helps protect our oceans and animals. The coordinator of the Plastic Free Noosa program, Chad is developing and implementing a community approach to reducing key single-use plastics. If you're one of our members, you've probably met Chad - his enthusiasm is hard to forget!
Working for Boomerang Alliance through a QLD State-funded pilot program, Tourism Noosa has further invested in the program to keep it going and to help its members, events and festivals and the community get the support and advice they need to help them make a huge impact for the environment. This is a great movement not only for our local community but also to the tourist who come to the area - as our environmental practices don't take a holiday when we do!
Chad works closely with Juanita, the Sustainability Manager, and a fantastic and growing sustainability green team to achieve these goals. To find out more about Plastic Free Noosa and even join up as a business or individual, please go to the www.plasticfreenoosa.org
