Nearly 100 people attended a public meeting in Wadebridge last night (Monday) to hear about a new initiative designed to reduce plastic waste.

Mark Collins Wilsher organised the event, at the town’s Betjeman Centre, and led a discussion about the impact of plastic on society and the environment, and ways that waste can be reduced.

Several exhibitors involved in alternatives to plastic – such as cardboard packaging and carrier bags made from natural fibres – also took part in the event.
