This month, I launched the Single-Use Plastic Free campaign for Cardiff North along with Julie Morgan AM. Our campaign is about encouraging local businesses to become as plastic free as possible and offering suggestions for alternatives. It’s also about the community taking advantage of offers and playing their part, by reusing bags and bringing reusable coffee cups when they’re out.
As a member of the Environmental Audit Committee in Westminster, I’m working hard with my colleagues to put pressure on the Government to introduce measures that will reduce the amount of plastic we produce in the UK. But in the meantime, Julie and I are now looking for other people in Cardiff North to come forward as Plastic-Free Champions in their area, and then hopefully the campaign will spread to other parts of Cardiff and Wales! If you would like to become a Champion for your area, or get involved, then please call my office on 02920 624440.
It was also great to visit Gabalfa Primary School this month. I wanted to say a big thank you to the Ladder Council for welcoming me to their meeting; it was great to find out how the students are getting involved in the running of the school. I really enjoyed our discussion about their plans for helping the environment.
It was also great to have a tour of the new school that is currently being built – really looking forward to being there when it opens later this year.
