THE PLASTICS PROBLEM for Australians

global plastics production 1950 to 2015

Australians used 

3.5 million tonnes  of plastics in 2018 to 20191 of which around 60%  was imported


One million tonnes of Australia’s annual  plastic consumption is single-use plastic


Australia is missing out on an estimated  $419 million of economic  value each year  by not recovering all PET  and HDPE 


84% of plastic used is sent to landfill and only 13% is recycled


In Australia approximately  
130,000 tonnes of plastic leaks into the marine  environment each year


Australia uses around  

70 billion pieces of soft ‘scrunchable’ plastics,  such as food wrappers,  each year


By 2050, it is estimated that plastic in the oceans will outweigh fish


Our use of plastic  is increasing,
and across the world  will double by 2040
