The time has come to say bye-bye to single use plastic...

Make a pledge
Sydney school girl Sophia Skarparis is on a mission against plastic pollution.  Her first target is plastic bags in NSW.  She started a petition and collected over 12,000 handwritten signatures in 2018.   Sophia took it all the way to NSW Parliament but the NSW Coalition government dismissed it saying plastic bags were not a significant issue to legislate on.

It is time to ban single use plastic bags in NSW and then continue our fight against the massive problem of all single use plastic items that end up in landfill or the ocean.

Join Sophia and make your voice heard this election on 23 March 2019 in NSW.



Our Mission

Our mission is to encourage businesses and shoppers to replace single use plastic items like bags, straws and with reusable replacements to reduce the amount of single use plastic that ends up as pollution in the environment.

More than 8 Million tonnes of plastic enters the world’s oceans every year.


Over 90% is single use plastic.


Its time…to break up with single use plastic and embrace reusables bags, cups, bottles, straws and spoons.


How to #byebyeplastic #helloBYO

  1. When you see a business doing something to reduce single use plastic give it a shout out by taking a snap and share it with #byebyeplastic
  2. When you catch a shopper embracing re-usables (it could even be you) take a snap and share it with #helloBYO to inspire us all
  3. Show your support so everyone says #byebyeplastic #helloBYO
