Plastic pollution is wreaking havoc on our planet, and single-use plastic bags are one of the most significant contributors, it’s no surprise that many local and state governments are banning them.

 

We have summarised the changes for you and even come up with a sweet little infographic to show what it means for each state.

Yelo is a cafe with sustainability and community at front of mind. Based in Perth. In the suburbs of Trigg, Mount Hawthorn and Subiaco, they source their bean from grower direct, ethical and sustainable coffee farms, serve their products in eco-friendly Biopak takeaway packaging, and was one of the first to sign up for Australia’s national composting service for food service packaging.

Rainforest Rescue Update

A Bennett’s Tree Kangaroo spotting, leaf litter research, and the powered up native nursery are all in this month’s Rainforest Rescue blog update!

As consumers become more aware of the consequences of waste in our environment, businesses have been keen to bandy about buzzwords such as ‘green’, ‘eco’, and ‘sustainable’ in the branding of their products. But how many of these products are truly sustainable?

We are pleased to officially join the global community of forward-thinking companies adapting to a more socially conscious business world.

As consumer trust in advertising falls, and global awareness of the environmental impact of our consumption habits rises, companies are rushing to highlight the ‘eco-friendly’ aspects of their products in a bid to appeal to the conscious consumer and increase sales.

The BioPak Compost Service is now available in five major cities across two countries – Auckland, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth. Auckland Council is a long term BioPak packaging customer and an early adopter of composting –  they have worm farms onsite for food waste and late last year BioPak helped them install compostable packaging bins at five of their offices to divert all their packaging waste from landfill too. Fitting perfectly within their 'Waste Management and Minimisation Plan' which sets the goal of zero waste to landfill by 2040.

Veganism is on the rise, with consumers seeking ethical, sustainable and healthy alternatives to traditional food consumption. So, it’s no surprise that Charlie’s Raw Squeeze®️ – a network of 10 juice, smoothie, and superfood bars in Queensland – is a huge success. Embracing the market-to-mouth philosophy, Charlie’s Raw Squeeze offers a range of plant-based meals, snacks, juices and smoothies all made with produce from their partner business, Charlie’s Fruit Market.
