Members, Join In!

Members, Join In! Clean it. Scrunch it. Co-op it. Hero

Members told us they wanted more action on plastics and worked with us to develop our new soft plastics recycling units. Thanks to their input, everyone can now recycle soft plastics, like crisp packets and bread bags, at a Co-op in their community. Members also asked us for shareable resources to support them in getting the word out - so here they are.

Do something great big and green!

We know members are passionate about tackling climate change as well as plastics, so we are celebrating the Climate Coalition’s Great Big Green Week taking place from 18 - 26 September 2021. It’s a nationwide celebration of action on climate change.

Join thousands of people calling on the government to commit to a cleaner, greener world that works for everyone. Show your support by adding your name to our online declaration addressed to the Prime Minister asking for a healthy, sustainable and fairer future.
