Event Overview

Plastic Free Newquay

Earth Day this year is focusing on plastic pollution. Help us make the point to our supermarkets that the levels of unnecessary plastic are no longer acceptable. A positive and friendly statement. Just rock up at your local supermarket, do your shop and after purchasing, move away from the till, unwrap your shopping from it’s plastic and give it to customer services at the supermarket to recycle.

Some instructions to make things go smoothly on the day

1) Don’t forget your resusable bags and containers.. A small pair of scissors might be useful as well for removing wrapping.

2) Meet at your allotted time and aim to do around a 30 Min shop. Then head to the tills and pay.

3) Move away from the checkout to unwrap and don’t hold anyone up.

4) Unwrap the shopping the can be unwrapped and put in your bags

5) Please take pics and videos of your unwrap.. Post them to the event and to the relevant plastic free social media pages e.g. Plastic Free Newquay, Surfers Against Sewage, Final Straw.

6) Please please use the following hashtags when you post so we can get it trending. #massunwrap #EarthDay #PlasticFree #PlasticFreeCoastlines

6) The supermarkets are providing recycling bags so just pop your plastic into the bags.

7) The supermarkets are doing lots to co-operate so maybe show some love and have a cuppa in the cafe afterwards..

8) Group photo!!
