Strattons Lane Update

Strattons Lane Project
Stratton’s Lane is a well used path between Herbert St and Tanti Ave that provides access across Tanti Creek.
This project involves planting out portions of the lawn along the lane with native grasses and forbs.  This will improve the appearance of the lane and may also act as an anti-graffiti measure.  Mulch has been delivered on the Herbert St side.  Mulching and planting will be undertaken as soon as Covid-19 measures allow.

Ban The Bag – Send an Email to Your Local MP

Following the Meeting of Environment Ministers on 28th July 2017, we failed to see a national-scale announcement of a ban on lightweight bags, as NSW blocked any advance. But we are still moving forwards.

There was some state progress and we know that Victoria and Western Australia are still considering a ban and working towards new policies. Of course major retailers have also committed to phase out the bag, but this won’t cover all outlets, still leaving millions of bags polluting the environment. The National Retailers Association supported the call for state laws to cover all stores – so it’s now up to the politicians.

To continue the fight for our oceans we are asking you to send an email to your local MP asking them to increase the pressure on their Premier in WA, NSW and Victoria to introduce legislation to protect our oceans.

All you have to do is type in your postcode and your details and the form will automatically update the template – or feel free to add your own personal touch to your letter.

Help introduce solutions to plastic pollution by sending an email to your local MP.

There really is no excuse for inaction. It’s well and truly time to #BanTheBag across Australia once and for all!

Thank you for all that you do,

Jeff Angel and the Boomerang Alliance Team.
