Plastic Free Devizes

 Worrying About Plastic Pollution

 

There's a better way than throwaway

 

38.5 million plastic bottles are bought in the UK every day. Plastic takes hundreds of years to break down, and yet we use it to store products that we consume within minutes. It doesn't make sense.

 

The plastic crisis is part of the climate crisis. 99% of plastics are made from fossil fuels.

One in every ten barrels of oil is being used to manufacture new plastic.   

 

It's clear that recycling is not enough of a solution either. Only 9% of plastic ever produced globally has actually been recycled.

We need to drastically reduce the amount of plastic we produce.

 

We need to ditch disposable plastic and embrace reusable products wherever possible. We can free where we live from single-use plastic.

 

We're on a mission to help Devizes become a Plastic Free Community.

 

We'll be talking to local businesses, working with local schools, engaging with the Council and organising community events.
