Reducing single use plastics

Single use plastic accelerates climate change through greenhouse gas emissions at every stage of its lifecycle, but within our local community there are ever-increasing ways to reduce your reliance on it. This group helps champion ways we can reduce single use plastic in our homes and local businesses. 

 

Areas where you can make a difference include:
  • Carrying one of our Boomerang bags
  • Using a water bottle when out and about, and using one of the ‘re-fill’ participants
  • Shopping with your own plastic container at the following shops - A C Partners butchers, Walkers the Baker, Wotton Farm Shop
  • Buy loose goods by weight and packaging free (local suppliers include: 'Leaf and Ground' in Dursley, 'Good Food on the Edge' fruit and veg shop, 'Loose' in Stroud)
  • Cook as much of your own food from scratch as possible
  • Pick up alternatives for single-use plastic, including beeswax wraps, glass kilner jars and bamboo cutlery

 

Upcoming events:
