Petitions shows govt that QLD is serious about environment

KEPPEL MP Brittany Lauga believes thousands of signatures on a petition shows the State Government that Queenslanders are serious about the environment.

Ms Lauga said the government had formed an advisory committee to discuss banning single-use plastic bags and creating a container deposit scheme, similar to that in South Australia.

"That would be a great system here, we know from the history in South Australia that it works really well down there and it supports a lot of community groups," she said.

"I think that the pressure now is on the state government to really consider the way forward and I know that it's definitely on their agenda."
