Plastic Free Noosa

Plastic Free Noosa is a Tourism Noosa initiative that's free and easy to join. We help businesses successfully eliminate six single-use plastic items which represent the most problematic and prolific sources of the litter stream. When members eliminate all of these, they become Plastic Free Champions and are promoted as such in the community.
