"Plastic free" establishments have eliminated the following items and have proper recycling practices in place.


  • Polystyrene/plastic takeaway containers

  • Plastic straws

  • Plastic cutlery

  • Plastic water bottles

  • Plastic bags


Plastic Free Wollongong is proud to support local organisation Fair Food Forager - a free service that supports consumers with their ethical food decisions. Download the app or visit the site and search using the Ocean Friendly and Reduced Plastics icons to find and support local sustainable businesses!

The Illawarra region is the first in Australia to pilot the new program. Plastic Free Wollongong is so excited to collaborate with the Surfrider Foundation and Fair Food Forager to put Wollongong and the Illawarra on the map as leaders in the fight against plastic pollution!
