The last (plastic) straw: Redditch group Rubbish Friends leads campaign

Ross Crawford 20th Oct, 2018

A NEW eco initiative has been launched in Redditch by the campaign group ‘Rubbish Friends’.

Press Pause on Plastic Straws is a nationwide drive aimed at persuading businesses – and their customers – to say no to plastic straws and yes to paper or re-reusable ones.

Locally the campaign has already had great success in neighbouring Stratford-upon-Avon and in Redditch Rubbish Friends have joined with Eco N Wise and Rees Cafe in Church Road to push the green message.

Any business that would like to get onboard should contact Eco N Wise on Facebook for a window sticker and poster to display.
