Please be part of the team that will encourage us all to ditch our plastics on carnival day and beyond.

Pre Carnival:

  • Clean-Up Sessions
  • Stamp-the-bags prep

Carnival Day:

  • Handing out paper bags in the H Energy area
  • Sharing the facts around single-use plastic with carnival-goers
  • Signing people up for future supermarket actions around the county
  • Plastic Activity: Making planters out of plastic bottles with Hellens Garden Festival
  • Supporting all recycling stations at the carnival
  • Talking to stall holders about how best they can recycle, what they’ve been able to recycle this year and what might work well in the future

Beyond:

  • Encouraging local shops and supermarkets to use paper bags with actions around the county

Sign up here and we’ll be in touch. If you’re part of, or lead a group that would like to be involved together – or maybe you’re already taking action around plastics – you can sign up as a group.

We are also on the look-out for large used plastic drinks bottles, soil/compost and small seedlings or plants as Hellens Garden Festival will be leading our plastic planter activity.   Email events@hgnetwork.org with any leads… thanks!
