Pledge from Businesses
We will never stop using plastic but we can certainly educate all sections of the communities to use less single-use plastic and discard it sensibly. In all this, businesses play a huge part, as a lot of plastic reaches them from manufacturers. Many have joined in the WASUP campaign such as business networking organisations: Best Of Walsall, In Touch With Walsall and Old Bank Business. Doug Wright of McDonald’s is a huge supporter as are WHG and Homeserve – the biggest employer in the West Midlands. All we need is for them to formally take a non- binding pledge to work towards the removal of single-use plastic and indeed put pressure on their suppliers to send less plastic to them.
