Online Fundraising


Plastic in the ocean is estimated to outweigh fish by 2050.


Get your friends and family to sponsor you to go plastic free this July. Raise awareness, create change in your circle of influence and help raise money for the Cairns and Far North Environment Centre.


Say no to all single-use plastic items, just the Top 4 (straws, plastic bottles, plastic bags, coffee cups) or make your own custom pledge (eg. plastic-free workplace, classroom, or travel). 


Sign up for a day, a week or the whole month. Take an individual challenge, or galvanise your friends, colleagues, or students and sign up as a team!  


Maybe you will even be inspired to turn your plastic-free challenge into a life-long habit. 


Plastic Free July went off with a bang last year as scores of Far North Queenslanders pledged to break old habits by choosing to refuse single-use plastics. 

The plastic-free movement is taking off in our region. Statewide, we have had huge wins: the Queensland Government has committed to banning plastic bags and introducing a Container Deposit System from 2018. 

So come and join us! Pick your challenge, get your friends and family to sponsor you, and stand up for a waste-free future.
