Thanks to David Attenborough's The Blue Planet, there is now great public awareness of the damage we are all doing with our plastic packaging. This new campaign is looking at how we can phase out plastics by reducing their use and sourcing biodegradable alternatives from natural sources. We are starting by getting people to pledge to go "PlasticFreeFriday" on a Friday.
This exciting campaign has been very successful over the last 3 years and will continue in 2018. The great news is that the Government has listened to our lobbying and announced a National Pollinator Plan in 2014. This year we will concentrate on encouraging Bee Worlds around the area and strengthening the Plan through lobbying our MPs.
