I Quit Sugar - Hobart declares war (again) on waste

Another win for sustainability!  

Hobart City Council voted earlier this week for the introduction of an environmental by-law that will phase out single-use plastic containers and utensils by 2020.

For now, all plastic containers will be replaced with similar biodegradable cartons, but the city’s ambition is to have commercial-grade compost bins installed around the city to facilitate the recycling of these new containers.

Good on you Hobart for leading the way in the war on waste! Which city should be next?
