#PlasticPromise

An incredible 819 units from Girlguiding North East England took part in the Future Girl Acts on plastic week of social action during Sep 30 – 6 Oct.

Girls and young women from across the region looked at ways to cut down on plastics, wrote to their local MPs and influencers and made their #PlasticPromise. Units recycled plastic bottles and packaging by creating amazing plastic sculptures of animals that are often harmed by plastic pollution on land and in the sea. Take a look below to see some of the wonderful creations from units and divisions across North East England!

What is a #PlasticPromise?
A #PlasticPromise is a promise to our planet and wildlife that we will stop using single use plastic and recycle what we can. Some of the #PlasticPromises included promising not to use plastic bottles and instead to use a refillable bottle or promise to stop using plastic cutlery. What is your #PlasticPromise?

You can still make your very own #PlasticPromise online. Help us keep the momentum going! We want everyone to hear about our promises and to make their own #PlasticPromise too. Encourage your family members, friends and those outside of guiding to pledge their own promise and help us make girls’ voices heard. We want politicians and decision makers to listen to the concerns of girls and young women across the UK. Help us by spreading the message, make a #PlasticPromise and write to your local MP.

Take a look at the fantastic plastic sculptures Rainbows, Brownies, Guides & Rangers created during Future Girl Acts on plastics!
