Formed in 2016 to reduce plastic pollution, we are an association of organisations, businesses & individuals making an impact on single-use plastic in the Byron Shire.

Cafes & restaurants of Byron.. why not ‘Make the Switch’?

Have you thought about your business going plastic free, but don’t know where to start?

We get it.. researching the right products & suppliers can be hard, time consuming & you may be worried about costs. So, Plastic Free Byron has teamed up with The Boomerang Alliance on a new campaign called ‘Make the Switch’, and we have done all the work for you.

We can show you what alternative products to use & where to get them. We even have cost comparisons to help. We know some pretty nice tricks to reduce plastic, making savings for you. We will make the transition easy & worry free. Benefits include a listing on our website, promotion, and free signage and resources. 


Your customers will thank you for making the switch!


We are making history! History of plastic bags in Byron Bay!

Yep, we are on a mission to give every accommodation provider enough reusable bags to satisfy their visitors needs. We plan to make reusable bags the only way our visitors shop and you can be a part of this movement.

We are also educating our youth with great ways to upcycle materials to make bags & to inspire creativity towards a reduction of waste! Exciting!
