My name is James Talbot-Kamoen. I am cycling around Australia solo - my bike, my tent, my equipment and plenty of spare tubes for my wheels. I am hoping to spend time on country, and learn what Australia is really about. Just a few of my plans are to work as a farm hand in different parts of the country, get in some local fishing, spend time in local communities, bring my Goolaburu friend Eric in Broome a signed North Melbourne football jumper, volunteer with a few community groups and get to know the people in Uluru, NT.

Over the next two weeks, state and federal governments will be preparing their positions on supporting a container deposit scheme (CDS), prior to the ministerial meeting on 24 August. We need to take action now!
Please, as a matter of urgency, send a letter to your Premier and Environment Minister Tony Burke seeking support for a national container deposit scheme along the low cost and efficient model proposed by the Boomerang Alliance.
