COME TO THE LAUNCH OF THE CAMPAIGN TO REDUCE PLASTIC POLLUTION AND MOVE TOWARDS BECOMING A PLASTIC-FREE TOWN
Concern over global plastic waste has been big news for a while, and can seem overwhelming. What can we do as individuals? What can we do as a town? The new plastics sub-group of Abingdon Carbon Cutters is launching the “ABINGDON CUTS PLASTIC” campaign to get us all started on the path towards a plastics free town.
We’ll have lots of information on local initiatives and what you can do to join in, including:
The national ReFill scheme coming to Abingdon #ReFillAbingdon, where you can fill your water bottle for free in cafes and shops; DOWNLOAD a poster here: REFILL POSTER
