Theresa May shows support for campaign to cut plastic waste

Theresa May dropped in to The Green Parrot to fill up her reusable water bottle on Friday.

The water bottle was one the Prime Minister was given on her birthday by Conservative group Maidenhead Matters.

The Green Parrot is one of a number of establishments in Maidenhead to have signed up to a national project called Refill.

The campaign was launched in 2015 by City to Sea, a Bristol based not-for-profit organisation which runs campaigns to prevent marine plastic pollution.

The project aims to let people know where they can fill up reusable water bottles.

Jane Hutton and the Maidenhead Challenging Plastic team have so far signed up more than 20 refill stations in the town.

Donna Stimson, co-leader of Maidenhead Challenging Plastic, said: “With the environmental challenges we face this initiative is so welcome in Maidenhead, everyone wants to see a cleaner town and less single use plastic.”
