Resources to Help You Submit on Govt’s Proposal to Ban some Hard-to-Recycle and Single-Use Plastic Items

On Wednesday 12 August 2020 the Government announced a proposal to ban a range of hard-to-recycle and single-use plastic items. The proposal is now up for public consultation until 4 November 2020, 5pm.

This proposal is a big deal and it’s important we take the time to have our say. You can find the consultation document and links to the submission form on the Ministry for the Environment website. You can also find our initial reaction to the proposals here.

As ever, The Rubbish Trip will be creating resources to help the public submit. We’ll be linking up with other organisations to share their resources too because collaboration is what we’re all about!

The kinds of resources you can expect to see include: a summary of the consultation document, resources breaking down key questions in the submission form, a template submission, our published submission, and a Submission Party Webinar. Woo!

Over the coming weeks we’ll be putting links to all these resources (as and when they are created), on this post right here, so give it a bookmark, and keep checking back 😀 So far, we’ve got our first resource here for you to start with.

Start here –> Resource 1: Summary of the Consultation Document

Here’s a two-page summary of the 74-page consultation document (because, let’s be honest, 74 pages is a bit of a slog…). See it below or if it’s not showing up, click HERE:

  • Just wanted to say thank you! I feel this is super important, but do not have the capacity to do all the reading (so many big words) and thinking (so much heavy stuff going on right now!). It’s great to be able to trust and lean on you! Your hard work is greatly appreciated!

    • So glad to hear that it’s useful! That feedback makes it all worthwhile 🙂 Will be more resources coming to help with approaching the submission form! 🙂
