This year we are coordinating a Plastic-Free Day on the 8th May. What’s it all about?
We are encouraging schools, businesses, groups and individuals to sign up to our Plastic-Free Day on the 8th May, Sir David Attenborough’s 93rd birthday! To take part, you need to refuse single-use plastics for the day – so it can be as simple as refusing to buy things wrapped in disposable plastic, making sure that lunch boxes do not have single-use plastic packaging in them, making sure that you use a reusable bottle, coffee cup and bag for the day.
For schools and businesses you could have an assembly or meeting to talk about the impact of plastic pollution in our environment and its impact on ocean health, or run workshops about it.
Visit our page and email us here so that you can download more information and resources, and we can add you to our list of participants on our website and social media. We are hoping to get some coverage of the day and the organisations taking part in the media and press.
We will be adding some more ideas for activities that you could use for the day soon – watch this space!
The day is being run with support from Sunsail, Hampshire Fire & Rescue, 11th Hour Racing and KEEN Effect. The day was successfully run last year at the fantastic Hook with Warsash School – you can find out more on their website here: http://www.plasticfreeday.co.uk/
