For those of you who came along to our HGN Gathering ‘Plastic Detox’ and have felt compelled to so something this is a neat campaign from Green Gumption. Back in November, they launched a #pointlessplastics campaign. It had a very simple premise: people could take photos of examples of unnecessary, excess packaging and other pointless uses of plastic, and tweet them using the #pointlessplastics hashtag. People have taken to the campaign in their thousands, and there have been some jaw-dropping examples of pointless plastics coming through on Twitter. Green Gumption will select the ‘best of the worst’ examples of #pointlessplastics at the Global Good awards ceremony in May.
And for those of you wanting to do something in Hereford a few of us are going to meet in the next week and decide what our first action should be… get in touch if you would like to be involved!
