Plastic recycling

It started with an email from our local Green Party – https://norwich.greenparty.org.uk/ – asking for people to collect certain types of plastic that cannot go in our normal recycling.

So, back in November we started collecting from a list given to us and managed to get 3 boxes full:

A lot of this was crisp packets and chocolate wrappers (the multipack ones and also the individual wrappers). We took them along to a gathering of like minded people and spent a couple of hours sorting them.

Eva did a great job getting on with sorting and helping out with all the adults. There must have been nearly 30 people (and several times this number of boxes and sacks of recycling).

And while you are at it, check out the local newspapers environment section: https://www.edp24.co.uk/news/environment

Here was an updated list of what is currently being collected:

There are a variety of venues in and around Norwich that will take these. Please get in touch with the Norwich Green Party – https://norwich.greenparty.org.uk/contact.html – if you also would like to contribute. Jon

  1. Long time supporter, and thought I’d drop a comment.

    Your organization’s wordpress site is very
    sleek – hope you don’t mind me asking what theme you’re using?

    (and don’t mind if I steal it? :P)

    I just launched my small businesses site –also built in wordpress
    like yours– but the theme slows (!) the site down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate
    any feedback) – it’s still in the works.

    Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care of yourself during the
    coronavirus scare!
