Transition Stratford has announced that this year’s Plastic Challenge Fortnight will take place from Monday 8 July to Sunday 21 July.
The Plastic Challenge asks people to monitor the amount of plastic in their shopping over the course of a week – and then to see if they can cut down on plastic during the following week. Though you can take the Plastic Challenge at any time, taking it with others helps spread the word – and the good ideas for living with less plastic.
Transition Stratford ran the Plastic Challenge for the first time last year, when nearly 50 people took part. Now organisers hope more than twice that number will join the Challenge in 2013.
Transition Stratford will be launching the Challenge Fortnight at the Stratford River Festival on Saturday 6 July and Sunday 7 July, when its stall will have information about plastic, games and activities. You can sign up for then Challenge then – or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to join in.
