Plastic Free July is our annual campaign to encourage people to reduce their waste by saying NO to single-use disposable plastic. On the 30 August 2013 the WMRC Earth Carers won the Local Government category of the Infinity Awards for the challenge. Thanks everyone who participated in the challenge and shared their ideas, successes and failures.
The Infinity Awards provide public recognition and encouragement to individuals, business, local/regional government and State Government agencies and community organisations that demonstrate innovation and commitment to reducing waste and increasing re-use and recycling.
