Campaigns IN PLACE RIGHT NOW
NO EXCUSE FOR SINGLE USE – single-use plastic in venues and at festivals is no longer justifiable, and so a campaign has been made for just that. It seems that the examples of the world have shown its do-able, so its’ time for UK to do the same.
RUN FROM THE JEWEL – Music Declares proposes an end to CD Jewel cases. As they are made from polystyrene, it prevents it from being recycled resulting in a very high footprint.
