Dear Local Business,

Whilst plastic is a pretty useful invention, the rise of single-use plastic items is an environmental nightmare. Now, imagine our village without these unnecessary and wasteful plastic items. This is what we, a group of local residents, are campaigning to achieve, one plastic bottle at a time.

With your support and actions we can help to remove single-use plastic from the area. We in turn, can support your business.

What do we mean by single-use items?

  • Plastic bottles
  • Coffee cups and lids
  • Plastic bags and plastic wrapping
  • Straws and stirrers
  • Sachets of sauces, salt, sugar and milk
  • Plastic cutlery


What are we asking you to do?

1. Have a check and see what items you are currently using which are single-use plastic. Have you already made changes? If so these count.

2. Make just three changes. Examples might include:

  • Offering a discount for those who bring their own cups,
  • Swapping plastic stirrers for metal spoons
  • Stopping selling bottled water and sign up to the Refill scheme instead.
  • Encouraging customers to bring their own containers.
  • Providing jugs of milk and jars of sugar for customers to add their own before leaving.

3. Let us know what you’ve done and we will support your business.
