Working towards a world where plastic pollution is unthinkable
Be the change...
No to waste incineration!
In this article, we explain why we oppose waste incineration, incuding the SRF plant at Cheney Manor, the planned incinerator at South Marston and another in Westbury. Waste incineration leads to disease.
Keep Swindon Tidy
The first Keep Swindon Tidy Day took place on January 2nd 2021, supported by 16 organisations. In compliment, we are working on a poster making collaboration which will see entries displayed around the town on signposts.
Waste Free February
A great first step to going plastic-free can be to take a plastic-free challenge. It can be informative and empowering. How about taking Wiltshire Wildlife Trust's Waste Free Februrary challenge?
Scientists confirm the safety of reuse and the dangers of plastic packaging re virus transmission and disease. Plastic pollution has greatly increased. Globally we have been using 129 billion masks and 65 billion gloves per month since the start of the pandemic. These important issues and more are addressed in the Summer of Refills campaign. and in the COVID-19 section of the library.
Carbon reduction strategy consultation
The contribution of plastic to greenhouse gas emissions / climate change was not mentioned in Swindon Borough Council's draft carbon reduction strategy. We responded to the public consultation to highlight this, and suggested courses of action.
The award winning Refill campaign has expanded beyond just bottled water. Download the new app and further reduce that plastic!
Screenings of the Story of Plastic film
We are providing screenings of the excellent Story of Plastic film, which includes a discussion afterwards. Please contact us if you would like to arrange a screening.
Summer of Refills campaign
Reuse is back on the menu! We are supporting the Summer of Refills campaign. The information is vital to stop us producing more unnecessary single-use plastic.
We now have a non-active account which points to this website. This article explains why.
