ZERO WASTE GROUP
Reduce, Refuse, Reuse, Recycle with RECYCLE being the last resort!
By taking ONE STEP AT A TIME we can make a real impact on our lifestyles.
Being part of something is easier than doing nothing. If we do nothing and are constantly getting messages about how serious climate change is, it can make some of us anxious.
Being part of something reduces the stress. So read our regularly updated posts and articles below to find out more. Also join Plastic Free Bradford on Avon Facebook for the latest ideas and information about plastic waste, so that ‘one step at a time’ you can change your habits and lifestyle to help stop changing the climate. Good luck!
If you feel you would like to help the group in any way please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
