Plastic Free Splendour action

If you’re heading to Splendour this weekend, rest assured the Plastic Free July action is too! 

The STEER project that provides breathalising services so everyone can ensure they’re safe to drive home will not being using plastic straws for the first time!

This means the planet will be saved from 1800 plastic straws!

We Refill is providing chilled & filtered water bottle refilling in the Global Village so remember to #byobottle and help avoid the thousands of single use bottles events like Splendour churn through every day!

If your super lucky these resplendent Mullum Cares stainless steel water bottles may be available to purchase from Mullumbimby IGA (where you need to #byobags), Santos Organics Mullumbimby (where you will get 15% off bulk items during July) and the Courthouse Hotel (where they will encourage you to break your straw habit as their straws are out-of-site to help keep them out-of-the-ocean).

If you’re hankering for a takeaway coffee checkout the 14 places in Mullum that will give you a discount if you #byocoffeecup on the Responsible Cafes website:)

Come for a visit to Mullumbimby, just 15 mins from the North Byron Parklands if you’re coming to Splendour and check out this town’s amazing efforts to reduce their plastic footprint!
