HEAD to Topsham today and bag a free shopping bag courtesy of Exeter City Council.
Over the last 12 months the council has aimed to reduce the number of single use plastic bags sent to landfill in Exeter by around 25 per cent.
It has done this by raising public awareness of the problem they cause for disposal and given away free reusable shopping bags.
Today the council will hand out its re-usable jute bags at a number of locations throughout the city in an attempt to again persuade shoppers to ditch their plastic bags.
The bags will be handed out at:
12.15pm outside Topsham's Nat West Bank, in Fore Street.
The bags will also be handed out in Exeter at:
11 am Heavitree (outside Nat West Bank)
2 pm Magdalen Rd (near parking area)
