Plastic Free Challenege Logo

Monday, 6 June to Sunday 12 June – It is impossible to live plastic free but for ONE week, East Devon residents are being challenged to make one change for one week.

You could:

• Buy condiments in glass and not plastic containers
• Buy a big bag of crisps or yoghurt instead of smaller bags/pots
• Buy loose fruit, vegetables and bread
• Take some Tupperware, a go have a look at your refill or zero waste shop – nuts, spices and eco cleaning products are normally always cheaper!

When the challenges ends, tell EDDC what you thought about the week on Facebook and be in for a chance of WINNING one of three plastic-free baskets. What did you find easy, what was hard, has anything stuck? Did you find any products cheaper than your usual shop?

Tuesday, 24 May: To get you started, EDDC is holding a FREE webinar, of the tiny changes you can make to help protect your planet whilst helping to save pennies– email environment@eastdevon.gov.uk with your name and they will send you the link to take part!
