4. Reduce plastic and eliminate single use plastic


Plastics in their many forms are extraordinarily useful products but they are made from oil and responsible for creating exceptionally large amounts of greenhouse gas emissions. Plastic is almost indestructible and can be a danger to wildlife. Some can be recycled but most cannot or is not. It can break into very small pieces called microplastics that contaminate soils, enter the foodchain and find their way into rivers and into the sea.


  • When shopping always look for alternatives made from natural products such as glass, metal, wood and fibre. Check clothes labels carefully.
  • Recycle hard plastics using your household waste recycling bin. Take soft plastics to the Co-op. See
  • Avoid bottled water where possible and carry a re-usable water bottle.
  • Likewise carry a re-usable coffee cup – some cafes offer discounts.
