SBC's Be The Change campaign fails to mention plastic

Swindon Borough Counci's Be The Change campaign fails to mention the growing contribution of plastic to climate change, directly and indirectly. We wrote to Keith Williams, borough councillor for climate change, to ask that this be remedied. Our request has been denied. Hence the borough council are potentially enabling further plastic production / pollution by omitting this vital public information.


After being ignored, I called Keith Williams asking for a response to our emails.

We were asked by the Swindon Advertiser to comment on the new waste incinerator contract between the borough council and Viridor. Here's the comment that we sent:

And here's the Swindon Advertiser article written from our comment. Note the omission of key points related to the borough council.
