Plastic Challenge is under way!

Transition Stratford’s Plastic Challenge is under way.

Aimed at helping people to reduce the amount of plastic they buy and throw away, the two week programme runs from Saturday 12 May to Saturday 26 May 2012.

The Challenge starts with a week in which you monitor the amount of plastic coming into your home through your usual shopping. Transition Stratford supporters who’ve already tried this out say it’s amazing how much plastic comes home with your shopping – even when you think you’re being careful not to collect unwanted plastic!

Having monitored a week’s worth of plastic, in the second week we aim to reduce it! How? Well, that’s up to you. What seems the easiest or obvious ways to cut down on the amount of plastic you are buying? Could you increase the amount you recycle? Transition Stratford has published some tips and advice to help – but you may come up with even better ideas.
