Make Wilmslow ‘Plastic-Free’!

Good News!

Many groups in Wilmslow are agreeing that we have to do SOMETHING to reduce the amount of single-use plastics.

We all know it is bad for the environment, bad for our wildlife – in fact

A TOTALLY BAD IDEA ALTOGETHER

 to throw away plastic items used just once.

WHAT CAN WE DO?

Transition Wilmslow is leading the campaign locally and have many voluntary groups on board as well as Wilmslow Town Council.

Come to the meeting on Tuesday 27 February 2018, 7:15pm, at Wilmslow United Reformed Church and you will meet up with other like-minded residents wanting to achieve full accreditation as a ‘plastic-free’ town.  We would like to form a ‘Plastic-free Wilmslow Steering Group’ and also make plans for our stall at the Artisan Market on 21st April 2018 to publicise the adverse impact of plastics in our environment.

We are sure people will have lots of ideas!

Many campaign groups are now enjoying greater publicity since the BBC series ‘Blue Planet’ highlighted the amount of plastic waste in our oceans.  You can find out more at:

Surfers Against Sewage If this doesn’t convince you – nothing will!

Less Plastic  – plenty information here with an on-line shop to buy water bottles, sandwich bags etc.

Transition Wilmslow have raised the plastics issue in the past

Can you live plastic free?

Save our Oceans anyone?

Don’t think disposable – think re-useable!
