We need to talk about plastic

Thursday 28 July, 6pm to 8pm
Griffith University EcoCentre
Building N68, 170 Kessels Rd, Nathan

Every year, plastic pollution causes significant deaths to marine life while reducing the amenity of south east Queensland’s waterways and bays. For many years campaigners have pushed for a ban on plastic bags and the creation of a Queensland-relevant cash for container scheme. The forum will be led by experts at the frontline of the plastic pollution debate – Boomerang Alliance’s Toby Hutcheon and Griffith University’s Head of the School of Environment, Professor Chris Frid. Join the drive to help create a healthier future for our waterways.

ecoBiz Insights: Efficient consumption of energy

Thurs, 28 Jul

Each month we’re bringing you insights from a range of industries and organisation to show you how these ecoBiz participants reduced their bills with no negative impact on their service quality. In fact, they actually improved their end product. Cutting costs is often much easier than finding new revenue, but many businesses fail to take advantage of savings opportunities which are right under their nose.

Join us for the first month where we’ll be hearing from Independent Schools Queensland.
