What are you pledging for National Zero Waste Week?
MRW asked politicians, industry leaders and others to nominate ‘one more thing’ they would reycle or reuse during National Zero Waste Week: 3-9 September - put your mouse over the photo for the caption.
What will you pledge? Tell us at firstname.lastname@example.org or add a comment below.
Those not shown above include:
- Samantha Roddick, campaigner: I carry a glass bottle with me for my daily water, so I don’t have to buy plastic ones. I have two composts, one for my garden and a council one, and I recycle. Where I fail is batteries: I don’t even know where to recycle them - so I am going to focus on figuring out how.
- Rebecca Hosking, founded ‘plastic free Modbury’, the first carrier bag free town in the UK and now a farmer: We don’t have much household waste at all but for zero waste week I’ll try and find a better use for leftover baler twine.
- Jo Dimbleby from Recyclebank: I’ve just signed up for an organic local veg box - all reusable/compostable packaging and I pledge to remember to bring a reusable water bottle to work with me.
- Emina Redzepovic from Cylch: I pledge to go on a litter-pick of my local area.
- Simon Oliver, Green Liberal Democrat vice-chair: I pledge to ask all our MPs to think about progressing the LibDem zero waste policy before 2015.
- Zero Waste York: We are going to pledge to compost fruit peelings from the office and help others to reuse more.
