Our plastic challenge is going quite well so far. Here’s what we’ve done:
- Went to the baker’s and bought a scone in a paper bag as a snack rather than going for crisps or chocolate in a wrapper.

- Has dug out some reusable fruit and veg bags to take to the supermarket so she doesn’t have to take the plastic bags on offer.
