Plastic Free July

Consultation has concluded

The plastic bottles, bags and takeaway containers that we use for just a few minutes are made with materials that are designed to last forever.

Every bit of plastic ever made still exists, and in the first 10 years of this century the world economy produced more plastic than the entire 1900's!

We would like to hear about what actions you already do, or may choose to take, to reduce your use of plastics that get used just once and then thrown away. These are known as “single use plastics”.

Plastic Free July is all about taking some positive action, whether you choose to refuse a handful of plastic items for a single day, or you commit to more permanent actions.
