BUSINESSES

If you own or manage a business in The Sutherland Shire, you can play a role in creating a cleaner, healthier and more beautiful environment by going plastic-free. 

No matter what type of business you run, you can still take part in the Plastic Free Sutherland Shire program and demonstrate your commitment to a healthy and beautiful local environment.

You can join Plastic Free Sutherland Shire by showing us how you’ve removed plastic from your business.

Here are some suggestions, but we know you’ll surprise us with others.

Remove single-use plastic cups from water fountains. Encourage clients and staff to refill their water bottles or provide glasses.

1.

Replace plastic decorations with those made of natural materials and replace plastic plants with the real thing.

2.

Provide reusable crockery and cutlery for staff. For events ensure you are using sustainable cutlery and plates if you can not use reusable.

3.

Purchase products for your office that are made of natural, sustainable and biodegradable materials instead of plastic, for example:

· Cardboard stationery

· Plastic-free packaging

· Toilet paper wrapped in paper
