Three of the most im­por­tant things you can do to try to beat dis­pos­able plas­tic:

Cotswold Life - - COTSWOLD ISSUE -

1. Start a work­place cam­paign: peo­ple who try to cut down on plas­tic used at work of­ten find col­leagues take th­ese tips home with them. That’s us­ing your power as an ac­tivist to great ef­fect.

2. Buy a re­us­able cof­fee cup: it’s a vis­i­ble sym­bol that spreads the word with­out im­pos­ing it. Plus, you’ll get a dis­count when­ever you use it! The ma­jor­ity of peo­ple are still us­ing dis­pos­ables, and not many of those are ever re­cy­cled.

3. Write to your MP to let them know that in next spring’s en­vi­ron­ment bill – due May/june-time – the pub­lic is ex­pect­ing legally-bind­ing mea­sures on re­duc­ing plas­tic.
