From 1 November 2022, single-use plastic straws, stirrers, and cutlery cannot be sold or given away for free !

Hi Everyone,

As you may or may not be aware, NSW, from the 1st of November is entering a plastic free ban on Plastics. Cutlery and Straws are the biggest change in this ban and includes Bio Plastic Cutlery.

Centaur Packaging supports this change and will only be selling Wooden and Reusable Cutlery.

We are not permitted to sell these items after the 1st of Nov 2022 and Businesses, including not for profits or charities are not permitted to use these items or risk being fined.  Plastic cutlery after this date are able to be used at Home for personal use only.

Centaur Packaging does have a limited amount of stock left at 99c per pack of 100 . So if you are having a family function and don't like using the wood. Best be quick!

If you need to know if the ban affects you or what items are affected? Please let me know and we will be more than happy to assist.


Bamboo is the best alternative to plastic cutlery

We stock Bamboo in forks, knives, spoons and tea spoons - see links below

Happy to help.
