BUSINESSES in Wilmslow are backing a town campaign to cut plastic use.

Plastic Free Wilmslow is campaigning to reduce plastic use in Wilmslow, and has been delighted with the number of businesses which are backing the campaign.

It has won support from Paperchase, Peter Herd, Sarafina, Hoopers and Rise, and the kiosk at the parish hall car park is already plastic free.

Chairman of Plastic Free Wilmslow, Ruth Menlove, said: “We are so near to achieving the necessary commitments from local businesses and support groups.

“We know from talking to businesses in the town that local residents are both sympathetic and aware of plastic issues, and will help support enterprises which demonstrate their commitment to the removal of plastics – even at the cost penalty of so doing.”

Peter Herd is backing the campaign

Plastic Free Wilmslow wants to get at least 12 businesses in Wilmslow removing at least three plastic items from what they use.

It also wants to get schools, community groups and everyone else involved in reducing, reusing, and recycling plastics better.

That way it can achieve plastic free status, as granted by Surfers Against Sewage.
