Plastic Free Pledge

Plastic waste is one of the greatest environmental challenges facing the world today. Estimates vary, but…

  • approximately 150 million tonnes of plastic waste is floating in the world’s oceans and this is growing daily;
  • more than 100,000 sea mammals and one million birds die from eating or becoming tangled in, plastic waste each year;
  • although a small percentage of plastic packaging is recycled, the rest is discarded, ending up in general waste bins and is incinerated or put in landfill;
  • much of it finds its way into our waterways, hedgerows or alongside roads.

The biggest impact we can have as a town is to reduce the amount of plastic used, starting in Devizes.
