Plastic Ban: Ceased Supply Of Single Use Plastic/Polystyrene

Apacks ongoing ‘Going Green’ campaign means we ensure our business continues to be environmentally responsible, we don’t wait for change, we make it happen. 

A new legislation has been passed by the Queensland government banning the supply of single use plastic. On 1st September 2021 all Queensland businesses and not for profit organisations, including supermarkets, cafes, hotels and food shops, will need to adhere to the government's ban.

To support Queensland's plan to tackle plastic pollution, our proactive approach towards environmental impacts means we have made the hard decision to not only cease supply on all single use plastic and polystyrene packaging (this includes plastic plates, cups, containers, and cutlery) implementing zero sales.  But to cease supply of replacements for these products.

What this means for Apack...  The decision to stop our disposable packaging supply means we are doing our part to reduce marine & land-based plastic pollution, detrimental injuries & poisoning to our Australian wildlife and overflow of landfill.

These business organisational changes allow us to effectively grow and thrive in new ways, ensuring that at all times we understand the reasons for all changes initiated.

We will continue to offer our customers with quality environmentally friendly Eco Products, including...
