Plastic Free Ottery week

  • by JW

Here’s a very impressive initiative starting today, as reported by the Herald:

Ottery’s plastic warriors and shops have joined forces to kick off a week of promoting alternatives to ‘plastic nasties’ in the town.

Shoppers are being encouraged from today (Friday) to change their ways by swapping their single-use plastic for more environmentally friendly items as part of an initiative by Plastic Free Ottery. 


Surfers Against Sewage has listed the 10 'plastic nasties' it is urging people to find alternatives too.


As part of the awareness week, Plastic Free Ottery has also arranged a number of workshops making environmentally friendly party decorations at Fillfull in Mill Street.

The town’s first zero-waste shop will hold workshops today (Friday) from 4pm to 6pm, tomorrow from 10am to 4pm and Saturday, July 28, from 10am to 4pm.
