Meals on Wheels NSW has partnered with the NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA), on an initiative that supports starting the conversation about the single use plastics ban in NSW with the Meals on Wheels network in NSW.
The initiative involved spreading the word about the single use plastics ban in NSW, and they captured many lovely stories from clients and volunteers, reminiscing about life before single use plastics.
They also invited members of the general public to sew or crochet bags for use by their local Meals on Wheels service, and started the conversation about the single use plastics ban and other alternatives that may be available for use. The bags have been really well received by clients and volunteers around the State.
Meals On Wheels NSW is passionate about sustainability, and motivated to help change habits and drive sustainable practices at a local level and thank the NSW EPA for their support with this initiative.
It is crucial that we not all simply rely on governments to do the heavy lifting. As communities we have a responsibility, when government has set a clear direction on such an existential issue.
