Today choose one issue : maybe plastic straws or plastic bags , and one venue – your local supermarket or favorite coffee shop.
And take action!
Here are some actions you can take:
- Write a letter
Get the contact details of the manager and write a personal letter to him/her explaining why you think their store is using too much plastic.
Write to your local community paper.
- Use social media
If you post a complaint about plastic on your social media, then tag the company (put @ with their name). They are often quite responsive.
- Start a petition
There are lots of sites for starting petitions which are quite simple to do. E.g https://www.change.org/ or https://secure.avaaz.org/page/en/
- “Plastic attack”
People choose a certain day and then everyone takes the wrapping off their products and leaves it at the till, to show they don’t want it and also to highlight what a lot is being produced. The goal is to get supermarkets to see that customers want less plastic.
