Spedian and Roadvert | Supporting Plastic Free Day Wednesday 8th May 2019

Spedian and Roadvert are supporting ‘Plastic Free Day’ 2019 in a bid to do our bit – yes, we CAN all make a difference!

Inspired by David Attenborough’s 2017 Blue Planet 2 on the BBC, which brought home just some of the harsh realities of what we are doing to our planet, ‘Plastic Free Day’ was set up in 2018 by Alex Rhodes of Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service.

By making some conscious choices in our everyday lives, we can help to minimise waste, preventing it from ending up in the countryside, sea and in some cases, even our food. #PlasticFreeDay aims to raise awareness of how huge the problem of disposable plastic is, re-educating everyone by sharing a common goal to go ‘plastic free’ for 24 hours.

Can YOU rise to the challenge? Share this feature on social media and take a look at the checklist of useful ways to stop using disposable plastic today…
