Hoorah. Good for Greenpeace!!!! Now you can email the CEO of your local supermarket directly via Greenpeace.

The letter starts as “I am a regular customer and I’m writing to express my concern that ???? is not doing enough to help curb ocean plastic pollution by reducing the amount of plastic packaging in your stores“.

Click on this following link for the full letter and the process for emailing. I’ve sent an email to CoOp, Tesco, Sainsburys, Waitrose as those are the stores I buy from most regularly. I was disappointed to not see Iceland on the list, but I’ll send a letter directly…along with all the useless unnecessary plastic packaging I’ve collected.

It’s time we got tough with the supermarkets. Phasing plastic packaging out by whatever date they suck out of the air, is bullshit. They have to stop using it NOW. There is no time to lose. Our oceans are in a mess and animals are dying by the million. Whales, dolphins, turtles, sharks, fish, birds…all are suffering horrendous deaths because of the plastic pollution that is blighting the oceans.plastic pollution, ban single use plastic, email the ceo, greenpeace

I’m thrilled that Greenpeace have started this initiative and I sincerely hope millions of people email the CEO’s of these companies.

BAN SINGLE USE PLASTIC. SAVE OUR OCEANS. SAVE OUT PLANET. SAVE OUR ANIMALS

Our local coffee machine at the station; Andy of the Red Bean Machine has gone ‘green’ πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ’šπŸ’šβ™»οΈβ™»οΈβ™»οΈβ™»οΈβ™»οΈ He’s now using fully biodegradable cups and lids made from starch, making them compostable. I’m well impressed at these small independent coffee shops/vans making a difference NOW and not PHASING it out by whatever date the large corporations and our governments come up with as a pathetic excuse to try impress us. THIS is impressive, time ⌚ for the big coffee chains to step up and BE THE CHANGE we want to see. There is no longer any excuse, alternatives to PLASTIC are available @starbucks @costacoffee @caffenero @pretamangeruk etc etc #bansingleuseplastic #nomoresingleuseplastic #nomoreplastic #bethechange #saveourplanet 🌏🌎🌍 #saveouroceans🌊 #saveourwildlife #stepup #BeLikeAndy #beaplanethero

As I’m sure you well know by now, there’s a massive problem with discarded plastic in our rivers, seas and oceans.

I recently connected with a company called Making Waves Clothing on instagram.

Their clothes are made from 100% recycled products: Salvaged waste cuttings from organic cotton clothing, shredded and blended with recycled plastic bottles. The end result is this fantastic top, so soft and silky which belies the product used to make it.

Rocking my new @makingwavesclothing sweater.

Love it. I got 2 t-shirts as well. They are going to be perfect for my long-distance UK walks, and the colour I chose for the t-shirts fits with my Camino colour scheme.

“They said I was trash, But now I’m fashionable”. 😁😁😁😁 Genius

If you’d like to order some for yourself, they’re a UK based company and here is the link. Please note this is not an affiliate link, but goes directly to their website
