HEAD to Exeter on Friday August 1 and bag one of the remaining Green Bags in the city council's drive to cut down on plastic bags.
Exeter City Council has aimed over the last 12 months to reduce the number of single use plastic bags sent to landfill in Exeter by around 25 per cent and raise public awareness of the problem they cause for disposal.
The campaign has been endorsed by several celebrities, including the Prime Minister, and has won a number of awards.
The re-usable jute bags have previously been distributed to shoppers in the city centre, and the last of these events will take place on Friday, in the shopping streets outside the central area:
8.45 am Cowick St (by Nat West Bank)
10 am Whipton (outside main shopping area)
11 am Heavitree (outside Nat West Bank)
12.15 pm Topsham (by Nat West Bank)
2 pm Magdalen Rd (near parking area)
