Following the very successful Beach Clean 2 weeks ago and blessed with sunny but windy weather Grange Soroptimists were out on the Promenade talking with the public of all ages about plastic and with ideas of how to tackle the problem. There was a treaure hunt, educational stalls about plastics, packaging, recycling and of course creating an art work from plastic found at the beach clean.What are Grange Soroptimists doing to help the Environment?
The Soroptimists are most grateful to the following people who joined them for the afternoon:
Hannah Barnes from Love my Beach ( Morecambe Bay Partnership) who demonstrated issues with plastic in the Marine environment https://lovemybeach.org/groups/morecambe-bay/
Cat Moffat from Cut the Wrap shop in Ulverston who showed ways to cut plastic usage in day to day life https://www.cutthewrap.co.uk/
Jeni McConnell, Global Ecobricks trainer showing how to make Ecobricks https://www.ecobricks.org/
and Andrew Vickers Recycling officer SLDC, discussing the local issues about recycling.
