Plastic Free Launceston – Trish Haeusler

Meet Trish Haeusler.  She’s a good sort because she’s the founder of Plastic Free Launceston, a community group dedicated to ridding the city of single use plastics.

Plastic Free Launceston was started in early 2017 after identifying a need to respond to the growing concerns of plastic pollution. A Facebook page launched a community conversation and it quickly progressed into an active working group of TamarNRM.

The aim of Plastic Free Launceston is to promote practical ways to reduce single use and unnecessary plastics and to invite the community to increase their understanding of plastic pollution and share their own ideas to combat this problem.

The dedicated group has helped raise awareness and change behaviours towards plastic straws, shopping bags, balloons, coffee cups and a host of other one-off plastic wonders that we could all learn to live without.

Trish and the Plastic Free Launceston team regularly host workshops to sew cloth bags as sustainable alternatives to plastic, encourage businesses and individuals to get involved in Plastic Free July and The Last Straw campaigns and promote sustainable alternatives to plastic around the home, in workplaces and schools.
