FoE photo stunt calls on Cameron to halve residual waste by 2020

Environmental charity Friends of the Earth is to stage a series of photo stunts for local newspapers across the country, urging David Cameron to set a goal of halving residual waste by 2020 in the waste review.

More than 80 local Friends of the Earth groups will stage a photo “stunt” for local newspapers on Saturday 19 March, involving members dressed as the Prime Minister, posing with a saw and dustbin, bearing the slogan “It’s time Mr Cameron talked half as much rubbish.”

Friends of the Earth waste campaigner Becky Slater said: “Friends of the Earth’s campaigning brought recycling to our doorsteps, now we want the Government to halve the rubbish that has to go into our black bin bags by 2020.”

“Thousands of people have already asked David Cameron to talk half as much rubbish - getting waste right will be seen as a key test of his promise to run the greenest government ever.”
