    Celebrate South Australia’s environmental leadership

    In addition to having some of the most incredible natural areas in Australia, South Australia has many environmental wins to be proud of:

    1. In 2009, the first state in Australia to ban single use plastic bags.
    2. Western Quolls have been successfully re-established in their natural habitat of the Flingers Ranges after not being seen for 100 years.
    3. South Australia is leading the Australian states on renewable energy. SA sources over 36 per cent of its electricity from renewable
      sources and one quarter of SA homes have solar PV panels (www.climatecouncil.org.au).
    4. South Australians have the best landfill diversion rates on record with 83.8 per cent of all waste being diverted from landfill. (www.premier.sa.gov.au)
