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.
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.
