Ban Plastic-turf in public parks

Ban Plastic-turf in public parks

Ban Plastic-turf on public land.

Why is this important?

Plastic-turf kills the biota beneath & leeches toxins into the soil, while also increasing the heat island effect for the surrounding community.
We must phase out the use of plastics that pollute. The world is choking on our plastics. Wrapping the land in a plastic coating is nether sustainable nor in line with the spirit and principles of Moreland Council’s own “Plastic Wise Moreland”.
