Plastic Free Cairns is a community project under under Boomerang Alliance's Plastic Free Places program.


We work directly with local food retailers and assist them to switch from single-use plastics to better alternatives.


But... that's just the beginning. We also work with councils, suppliers, manufacturers and composters to deliver real solutions to businesses.

And if that's not enough.. we aim to inspire our community to make changes in your own life and support those businesses that do too! 

Our impact (and counting)


Our impact as at November 1, 2021 is... 

* Plastic Free Champions are members that have eliminated all of our key plastic items (straws, coffee cups & lids, takeaway containers & lids, foodware (cutlery, plates, cups etc), water bottles & bags).
