Taunton Deane go single-use plastic free
23/02/18 We Won
Our plastics petition was presented to a full meeting of Taunton Deane Borough Council last night and was well received.
There was support from all sides of the chamber and councillors unanimously voted to back our call for Taunton Deane to become a single-use free plastic council, including on dates for reporting back on progress.
861 people signed the petition (including paper copies) which made a difference in letting councillors know they were under a spotlight. They were keen to show their support and many brought reusable mugs and bottles to the meeting, including the Lady Mayor, who chaired proceedings.
There is a report with some further details and a picture here: wiveyaction.org.uk/2018/01/25/plastics-petition/
Thank you for your support.
