‘Low Plastic Zones’ launched.
In a bid to reduce single use plastic in the capital – the First ‘low plastic zone’ has launched in North London. More than three quarters of businesses in the Cowcross Street area of Islington have permanently reduced the single-use products they give to their customers and they’re encouraging others to do the same. By using alternatives like glass bottles, wooden stirrers and reusable materials it’s hoped that customers will choose companies that have embraced the this initiative.
- Other areas to have embraced the ‘low plastic zone’ are:
- Camden- West Hampstead
- Enfield- Southgate
- Hackney- Dalston, Kingsland Road and Ridley Road Market
- Haringey- Crouch End
- Islington- Cowcross Street
- Waltham Forest- Leytonstone High Street
