ECO CHURCH UPDATE - January 2020 (from the Parish Magazine)

This month, we're thinking about packaging. So many of us have bought something which just has too much packaging - and often it's plastic. If you're feeling brave, you can remove excess packaging and hand it in at the till. But if you'd prefer to, many shops will take your packaging back by post. Simply put the packaging in an envelope, enclose a note saying 'Thank you, I don't want this. Please cut back your packaging' and send it. Here are some addresses to get you started.
