HELP FREE LYME REGIS FROM PLASTIC CARRIER BAGS
We use them for an average of 12 minutes – but their lethal effects last between 15 and 1000 years.
Every year, British shoppers get through about 10 billion plastic bags. And every year, around 2 million dolphins, seals, seabirds, turtles and whales are killed by plastic bags in our seas.
On land, plastic bags can trap birds and block drains. They can disable cars and, if animals eat them, the toxic waste can get into your food.
But it’s simple to stop the plastic bag carnage – just join the Bag Crowd, the Basket Brigade or the BackPackers! Or make your own… (we tell you how). And of course spend your money with retailers who have stopped giving out plastic carriers.
On this site, you’ll find details of the growing number of Lyme traders who’ve joined the campaign, a list of upcoming TurnLymeGreen events, a petition to sign – and space for you to add your own ideas.
