Mass Unwrap Saturday June 8th 2024 at Cottenham Co-op store

We held a Mass Unwrap on Saturday June 8th 2024 12 -2pm at Cottenham Co-op store. It aimed to highlight the level of plastic packaging in supermarkets and put people-pressure on them to change. Individuals, families, friends and communities could all take part. People simply shopped and paid as normal and then unwrapped food to put it straight into bags, boxes or re-useable containers. The plastic was collected up by volunteers from Sustainable Cottenham and put in empty trollies, to show how much waste is generated in a short space of time. The supermarket then recycled it in their plastic recycling service. Mass Unwrap is friendly, non-confrontational and tons of fun! Many thanks to Naomh, Zaman and the Co-op team for their help and support.
