Plastic Fantastic this Christmas?

This month our youth clubs across the Cotswold’s have been making Christmas decorations from single use plastic for our entry in the Stow Christmas Tree Fair. Our tree, named ‘Plastic Fantastic?’ was decorated entirely with single use plastics. Below the tree there were gifts with tags that had suggestions of ways to reduce plastic usage. These include things like remembering to bring a reusable bag when you go shopping, bringing reusable cutlery and straws or even dining in instead of getting take out.

We were very impressed with the imaginative ways the young people turned single use plastics into Christmas decorations.

Sadly, the tree didn’t win any prizes but we have received lots of compliments and hopefully got lots of people thinking about their plastic usage this Christmas.
