Friends of the Earth (FoE) has launched #PlasticFreeFriday, a campaign to encourage people to stop using single-use plastic products.
FoE says that if we encourage enough people to make small changes to their lives, we can cut down the amount of plastic pollution in our environment – and send a message to companies and governments that they need to act too.
If you take the pledge to go plastic free on Fridays, FoE will send you some tips to help you get started. These include bringing a refillable water bottle to work and avoiding food wrapped in plastic.
