Mass Supermarket Unwrap with Plastic Free Thatcham

27 January @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Plastic Free Thatcham is raising awareness of the single use plastic issue faced today.

They invite you to participate in a Supermarket Mass Unwrap at The Co-Op in the Broadway, Thatcham on Saturday 27 January at 10am, with full support from the supermarket management.

WHAT IS A MASS UNWRAP?
Mass Unwrap is a powerful, symbolic action that highlights the level of plastic packaging in supermarkets and puts people-pressure on them to change.

Individuals, families, friends and communities can all take part. Simply shop and pay as normal and then unwrap your food from its packaging and put it straight into your own bags, boxes or re-useable containers.

The plastic packaging is collected up by volunteers and put in empty trollies, to show how much waste is generated in a short space of time.

The supermarket then takes the packaging away to recycle or dispose of it.

Mass Unwrap is a very friendly, non-confrontational event – please come and unwrap on the day.

Please contact Eco Friends (West Berkshire) or Jenny if you want to know more!
