Telford residents encouraged to ditch single-use plastics this February
Residents in Telford are being encouraged to go plastic free this February, with the launch of a new challenge.
Telford & Wrekin Council has challenged its residents to do their bit to reduce their single-use plastics over the coming month.
Last year, the council declared a climate emergency and committed to remove single-use plastic over the next four years.
Some of the changes it made include supporting the national Refill campaign, banning balloons from council events and getting rid of single-use plastic glasses at Oakengates Theatre.
A spokesman for the council said: "We all have a part to play and the council is keen to encourage everyone to do their bit to reduce single-use plastics.
"Anyone interested in ditching single-use plastic can sign up for our challenge."
