Plastic, it’s all around us and I’m sure you’ve come across the many headlines in the news about how the planet is choking on the deluge which is being produced and consumed every day. Not only that but Ramsbottom is home to one of the few Plastic Free shops in the North West, Plentiful.
This week I speak to Laura Chepner, Sharon Hanley-Hewitt and Pete Fillery who are all members of Plastic Free Ramsbottom on what they’ve been doing to get Ramsbottom the Plastic Free Community status with Surfers Against Sewage.
At the time of the interview Ramsbottom had not yet acheived the status of becoming a Plastic Free Community however within a week of recording the interview, it was acheived! Hurray!
With that said, they would LOVE for more groups and businesses to get involved, the work doesn’t stop just because we’ve been rubber stamped by Surfers Against Sewage as a Plastic Free Community, arguably it’s only just started.
I hope you enjoy the interview this week and I know together we can make a difference.
