Single-use plastic is a major issue in polluting the environment and harming wildlife. As part of our work, Christian Action for the Environment in BANES (CAFE BANES) is asking Christians in the period up to 30 September to look out for the unnecessary use of single-use plastic and to write to the companies who use or sell them. There are templates for different circumstances.
These template letters below are provided for you to send by email (or by post) to the Chief Executives of companies that are selling products in single use plastic or are selling items made of single use plastic. Please feel free to amend the letters as you feel fit. Do not feel bound to use the templates at all. Please however ensure that your email/letter is polite but firm.
The email address for the Chief Executive of most companies can be found at www.ceoemail.com. The postal addresses for major supermarkets are listed with the templates if you wish to write a letter (but this campaign is not aimed just at these 8 companies). Please do follow-up if you don’t get a satisfactory reply or they don’t reply at all.

What to do afterwards
1) When you have emailed/written please let us know by signing up using the form below. We want to be able to publicise how many letters/emails have gone from Christians in BANES between July and September.
2) Also could you forward any email responses that you receive to Rev Ian Souter by email, so that we can collate the responses.
