Carnival and Beyond: Be Part of the Plastic Action

Herefordshire Green Network are busy helping to make this year’s River Carnival the greenest yet.

Please be part of the team that will encourage us all to ditch our plastics on carnival day and beyond.

Pre Carnival:

  • Clean-Up Sessions
  • Stamp-the-bags prep

Carnival Day: UPDATE – we have a running order and activities – it’s looking packed and fun! Click on the image to see more.

  • Handing out paper bags in the H Energy area
  • Sharing the facts around single-use plastic with carnival-goers
  • Signing people up for future supermarket actions around the county
  • Plastic Activity: Making planters out of plastic bottles with Hellens Garden Festival
  • Supporting all recycling stations at the carnival
  • Talking to stall holders about how best they can recycle, what they’ve been able to recycle this year and what might work well in the future

Beyond:

  • Encouraging local shops and supermarkets to use paper bags with actions around the county

Sign up here and we’ll be in touch. If you’re part of, or lead a group that would like to be involved together – or maybe you’re already taking action around plastics – you can sign up as a group.

We are also on the look-out for large used plastic drinks bottles for a recycled bottle greenhouse activity… Email events@hgnetwork.org with any leads… thanks!
