PLASTIC FREE RAMSBOTTOM
That’s not all, she is also part of a campaign group made of residents and businesses called Plastic-Free Ramsbottom, created by councillor Kevin Thomas. They are working with Surfers against Sewage to gain accreditation by meeting different targets around reducing single use plastic. If they achieve their aims, Ramsbottom would be the first town in the North West to hold the prestigious title of Single Use Plastic-Free Town. Plans to work with a number of local community groups and businesses in 2019 are already in place to build momentum for the campaign.
“Becoming a ‘single use plastic-free’ town can only be achieved if we work together. Ramsbottom is a perfect example of this and how we can make a huge difference and inspire others to follow” says Abbie.
