#TheTimeIsNow Lobby

Anna met with many campaigners who had made the trip down to London from Broxtowe as part of The Time Is Now Lobby on Climate Change. Among the campaigners were local members of Oxfam and Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust. Anna welcomes the Government’s ambitious target of being carbon neutral by 2050. However, she believes there needs to be more action from the Government to deliver it. You can read Change UK’s views on climate change and the lobby of Parliament here.

Meanwhile Boots, who have their headquarters in Beeston, this week became the first pharmacy group to scrap plastic bags and switch to unbleached paper bags in their stores. The move will cut out 900 tonnes of plastic from their shops by 2020. Well done Boots!
