Plastic Free Sidcup
May 26, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Join us to launch ‘Plastic Free Sidcup’ on May 26th.
Since plastic was created more than a century ago we’ve become dependent on it for its convenience, innovation and function. But plastic is polluting our land and waterways. It is being generated far faster than it is recycled. It was recently revealed that more than 5 trillion pieces of plastic are floating around in the oceans. These are being consumed by fish and eventually travel up the food chain, causing potentially serious consequences for the health of wildlife and humans alike.
Promoting or making suitable, sustainable alternatives readily available will bring about a change in behaviour and reduce the amount of throw-away plastic in our society. With your help our town can become the first Bexley Town to achieve Plastic Free Community status. We will launch our event with giveaways of reusable plastic free items and hope to see you at our event launch.
