Zero Litter to Ocean
Creating jobs and stopping pollution
Within Australia and globally, there is unprecedented job loss and economic instability. Australian Government initiatives that can be implemented immediately to create jobs and ‘boost’ the Australian Economy and provide other tangible benefits should be considered as a priority. Stormwater NSW and Ocean Protect are calling on the Federal Government to establish and work towards a ‘Zero Litter to Ocean’ target for Australia. Achieving this target would mean that any pollutant larger than five millimetres (like a cigarette butt) would be prevented from flowing to any waterway or ocean from any currently ‘high litter generating area’ within Australia.
