Good for the Hood

Our friends Corina and Jo from ‘Good for the Hood’ have been busy helping to fight the war on plastic pollution. The passionate eco-warriors have teamed up with Craig Reucassel from the ABC’s War on Waste to create the Good for the Hood Action Toolkit that provides local communities all over Australia with resources to help them do their bit to reduce plastic waste.

The two young mums from Ryde began their mission to reduce single use plastic when they created ‘5 for Ryde’ – a campaign based on five easy things local residents can do to reduce what goes into landfill:

1. Ditch the disposable coffee cup
2. Ban the plastic bag
3. Say no to a plastic straw
4. Turn down the plastic water bottle; and
5. Know your waste so you get it right on bin night.

Check out Season 2 of War on Waste for other ideas on ways you can help reduce waste in your local community.
