Mass Unwrap is a fun and high impact action that shows how much plastic supermarkets use and puts pressure on them from the community level, to change. They are a great way to visually show the sheer scale of plastic packaging; 59 billion pieces are distributed every year, that’s 112 thousand pieces every MINUTE! *
Plastic Free Abergavenny is holding a Mass Unwrap event at Abergavenny Morrisons on Sunday 10th March between 12.00 noon and 2.00pm as part of a week of national action from @surfersagainstsewage
How do you take part? Just come and do your shopping during the time slot, pay and smile as usual and then head to one of their volunteers to unwrap any avoidable plastic packaging in your trolley or basket. You may want to bring an extra bag for loose fruit and veg. But that’s it!
