Straw no more

A recent visitor to Local Government House, Councillor Terry James from Cairns Regional Council spoke to us about Molly Steer, a 10 year old, grade 4 student from Cairns who has just won Cairns Young Woman of the Year for her idea, 'straw no more'. 'Straw no more' is a campaign to rid her home town and the Great Barrier Reef of single-use plastic straws. It's  a movement that has garnered global attention and has been taken up by more than 10,000 students across Australia.

See Councillor Terry James speak about this inspiring young woman and her campaign in the video below. You can also read about Molly here.
