Reduce the Plastic Footprint – Ways to Reduce Plastic in Everyday Life

“ I can only do what one can do but what one can do I will do ” – a quote attributed to John Seymour.

It is in this spirit that we are hosting our next workshop on Saturday, 23 March, 10AM – 1PM.

Anne Marie Mahon (PhD) GMIT will be facilitating the workshop.

We know from scientific research that plastic is deemed a threat to our ecosystems and
human health. We can feel helpless with the volume of plastic packaging we have to dispose of each week. We may think it is fine as long as our plastic goes into the bin but
unfortunately this is not the case, so there is a necessity for each of us to strive to reduce
our everyday plastics consumption.

Indeed there is already some positive action being taken by individuals, businesses and community groups. Together we can do more.

It is encouraging that our local O’Meara’s Supervalu will be introducing their new policy on Plastic Reduction.

And so we balance out John Seymour’s quote with Margaret Mead’s
experience: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”

We will also have alternative products on display and we will be sharing alternative techniques and practices.
