In 2017, 8.3 Billion tonnes of plastic was newly produced. Just 9% of this was recycled. As our plastic consumption grows, the damages to the earth become permanent.

Manchester is aiming to become the leader in ridding single-use plastics by 2020.

The plan to ban single use plastics by 2020 – such as plastic cups and cutlery – could make the real difference we need to protect the planet and you can help, by making simple lifestyle changes such as recycling or using reusable water bottles.

However small you think your contribution may be, as a collective we have the chance to make a change.

It's not too late.
