Plastic free Leek

Please help if you can!!

   A message from Sally Perry, our Sustainable Consumer coordinator.

We would love Leek to become a Plastic Free Community and we have made a start but to get things done we need YOU!!

To achieve Plastic Free status we need to do several things.

• Set up a Steering Group to move it forward
• Ask the Town Council to pass a motion supporting it.
• Hold at least two events, promoting it.
• Sign up 12 local businesses to become Plastic Free Champions. (They make three swaps, removing plastic items in their business and replacing them with alternatives.)
• Sign up 30 Plastic Free Allies (local schools, organisations, societies, clubs, etc.)  They make a pledge to reduce their plastic use.

At the moment we have a Steering Group of one – me!   We only need 5 people including someone from the Town Council.
I really can’t do it on my own. It would only involve two or three meetings a year and visiting / making contacts with local businesses and organisations to sign them up.

If you would like to help, PLEASE let me know. Also, if you work in a local business or are involved in any clubs or organisations, please get in touch and we can sign your group up and help you reduce your plastic use.

Thanks in anticipation,
