I suppose there'll soon be crusties and trusties having a picnic with superglue on Station St.
God help us...

Great meeting, so well attended, (probably 160 people) that we had to have two separate meetings. I spotted two or three crusties but that was not the norm.
@local99 Itís interesting that your concern is about a picnic on station street rather than your grandchildrenís environment though.

Is wanting the Government to tell the truth too much to ask?

Lovely poster Dave. Doesnít mention chinaís love affair with coal or third world population explosion.

No thatís true, well spotted.
The only way we can influence what China do is by leading by example and shaming them into it.
Itís up to us all as individuals to take some responsibility and change what we can and stop wasting precious time blaming others

Many would ask you the same question, chum. But I expect you'll be far too busy saving the world from people who aren't as marvellous as you.

Still no reason to do nothing
Here are some of the things you could do that can make a big difference:

1. Carry or provide reusable bags, bottles, lunch boxes and cutlery

2. Say NO to single-use bags, straws and other disposable plastic items wherever possible.

3. Bring your own bags to the supermarket for loose fresh produce Ė some shops will even accept your own containers for meat, fish and cheese

4. Dine in at cafes and restaurants that use real cups and crockery

5. Actively support shops and businesses that are taking steps to reduce plastic Ė and ask others what steps they are taking.

6. Swap liquid soap and shampoos for bar soap Ė and use cosmetics firms that offer to recycle/refill their packaging.

7. Download the Refill App at refill.org.uk to see where you can get tap water on the go

8. Find out which local shops can refill your detergent, laundry and shampoo bottles

9. Use a laundry bag to avoid synthetic clothes shedding plastic microfibres in the wash

10. Get to know what plastics you can and canít recycle through your council recycling scheme (and try to cut down on the ones you canít)
