Plastic Bag Free Penrith project


Plastic Bag Free Penrith campaign project for 2011

Background - The Opportunity

Single use plastic carrier bags are a significant environmental problem, as they easily become litter and are a choking hazard for land and sea animals, with many bags accumulating in the 'plastic garbage patches' in the middle of our oceans. Switching to reusable bags is a good first step to moving from a throw-away society to adopting a more sustainable way of living, both for traders and shoppers.

Petition photo-call with Rory Stewart

Fri, 17/12/2010 - 12:55 to Wed, 08/12/2021 - 06:07
The George Hotel

We've arranged a brief time slot to hand over our plastic bag charge petition to our MP Rory Stewart.  He will then lodge it formally at the House of Commons.

Rory can spare us a couple of minutes tomorrow at 12.55 pm  at the front of The George Hotel (where he has a meeting). Please can you confirm whether you will be able to attend? The more the merrier!

We'd love more people to come and be visible in the photo shoot.  Please contact the Resources and Waste group.
