To mark Parliament Week the 1stOdiham Guides visited the Parish Room to learn about local representation at work. They took the opportunity to lobby for action on a subject close to their hearts – the problem of pollution by discarded, single-use plastic. They had some good ideas on how we can all do more to help solve this threat to the environment. Here are their suggestions –
- Buy less plastic and try to influence big brands to use less plastic especially in wrapping. Use reusable bottles, bags and coffee cups.
- Use alternatives to plastic: paper cotton buds, wax wrap or boxes instead of plastic film.
- Don’t use single-use plastic cutlery, straws or coffee cups.
Plastic makes pollution
And pollution is bad
So we have to stop now
Before the world turns sad
