So, I’m frustrated today as I went to Marks and Spencer with my 7 month year old to get a few things we needed. I had little time to shop around and I wanted to walk into town.
I got done on how much plastic packaging I used. As a result I’ve:
- Written to Marks and Spencer via twitter and have had a response
- Will go into the shop tomorrow and drop off the plastic for them to dispose of it.
Also - at the weekend, whilst in Northern Ireland, I went to the families favourite ice cream shop and also was done with plastic spoons and a straw. I didn’t want to be a downer for everyone who had come out so I wrote to Mauds. (still haven’t had a response):
I’ve just come with my family to have an ice cream and milk shake in your shop at Newcastle. I was pretty appalled to find plastic straws, cups and spoons in the shop. Do you realise the weight of plastic in the sea by 2050 will be the equivalent to all marine life?
It would be great to see a place next to the sea pioneering change. If you need any help there’s loads of people who can support at www.bettercentury.org. If you have problems with finding substitutes etc we can help… for free…
Good luck in helping make this a century to be proud of.
