Actions for June 2021
TerraCycle helps to recycle a vast range of plastic waste. The Eco Group are liaising with volunteers that coordinate this scheme locally and are identifying items suitable for collection in church. Please let the group know of any items you would like help with or advice on.
Plastic pollution continues to be one of the most visible symptoms of the environmental crisis we’re currently facing. Support the efforts of supermarkets such as Morrisons, Tesco and Coop who are taking serious steps to reduce plastic packaging and sale of bags for life.
Please support Greenpeace’s call on the government to stop dumping our plastic waste abroad and to properly tackle our plastic crisis. Plastic is not only fatal to marine life when it is blown into the sea, it causes serious health problems for communities living near sites where our waste is burned in the open air. https://secure.greenpeace.org.uk/waste-exports-ty.
Take a bag with you when out for a walk and see how much plastic you can collect and recycle, Covid safely of course.
