We are holding a rally in Melbourne to celebrate World Oceans Day and demand action on marine plastic pollution.

On this day, the report from the parliamentary inquiry into Nina Springle's Bill to ban plastic bags, microbeads and excessive grocery packaging will be handed down.

We will voice our frustration about the lack of concise action on plastic bags in particular - as they are one of the most prolific and problematic items ailing our oceans.

We will be handing over an open letter to the Victorian Premier asking for a strong position on turning the tide on marine plastic pollution before the next Meeting of the Environment Ministers at the end of June.

For more information, please check out Nina Springle's briefing paper here:
