Plastic Free Wilmslow

Wilmslow is almost able to get certified as a Plastic Free Town – so many individuals and businesses have taken/are taking action to reduce their plastic use. Lots more to do of course, but thanks for all that some of you have done!

Did you see War on Plastics on TV? Lots of people were really moved by what is happening to our planet from plastics. On the 4th July, about 80 children, young people, and adults met outside the Library in Wilmslow with plastic to return to Sainsburys, as part of Plastic Free Wilmslow’s efforts to demonstrate that we do not need plastic in so much of what is sold to us. We were filmed for a future BBC broadcast, with children from the High School and several local primaries schools getting individual interviews about why they were retuning that plastic. We then processed across the car park to place the plastic in to a shopping trolley and returned it to the Manager with our messages.

Meanwhile, if you shop at Sainsburys, buy your vegetables loose into your basket- they are cheaper and better for the planet, as well as encouraging the management that it is possible.
