Northampton Borough Council last week unanimously agreed to declare a Climate Emergency and Northampton Green Party supports this with a bag amnesty this week in the town.
Shoppers are encouraged to bring a plastic bag to the Green Party street stall and exchange it for a Green Party reusable tote bag.
Steve Miller, Parliamentary Candidate for Northampton North said “The Councils across Northamptonshire are going to have to take some difficult decisions but we are keen to encourage people to do what they can to help.”
“By swapping a plastic bag for one of our tote bags, shoppers have the opportunity to get rid of one of their plastic bags and replace it with something far better for both Northampton and for the planet.”
The Green Party in Northampton has been handing out tote bags since 2015. Shoppers will be able to exchange their plastic bag for a tote bag outside the Kingsthorpe Library Building on Saturday 15th June from 10:30 – 11:30
