News from West Sussex Waste News
Ropey or rosy? You decide.
1. Electrical gadgets
We are (mostly) used to taking our own bags shopping and not relying on carrier bags. But what about other single-use plastic items? The media have run stories daily since Christmas about the fight to cut back on plastic, and plastic featured heavily in the government’s 25 year Environment Plan last month. In West Sussex, we are still seeing an extraordinary amount of plastic going to waste, but we know a good chunk of it could have been avoided in the first place.
With this in mind, we are supporting Sky Ocean Rescue’s #PassOnPlastic campaign and we’d like your support too. Can you pass on any of the plastics below? We’ll be going big on this in March for Waste Week (5th-9th). Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for more info.
