Wow! What an incredible week we have had. It's been so wonderful to see that so many people genuinely care about the plastics problem, and we can see that by working together, we can achieve change. Big business is listening to communities and individuals: PG tips have pledged to remove plastics from tea bags, the government and supermarkets are now setting targets to reduce/eliminate single use plastics - the tide is turning. As consumers, we need to keep up the pressure and 'be the change' as much as we possibly can.
See the video for our pan along our scroll of achievements for the week: yes, it's quick, so we've listed it all below for you to see!
The week being over doesn't mean that our campaign is over though. We're working towards new objectives and goals. If you'd like to volunteer join our team, please drop us a message and let us know. The more people we have, the more we can achieve!
