Take the Willingham plastics pledge!

Willingham Action Group is branching out to encourage more sustainability in our community. As a start, we would like to invite you to take a pledge to reduce your consumption of plastics.

Please send your pledge to

  • We will need to know your first name
  • Your email address
  • And who else you are signing the pledge for if signing on behalf of your household, please let us know how many people there are in it.

Prize Draw

We will be holding a draw just before Christmas 2021 of all the names we receive. We are offering a prize of a hamper with a difference – it will consist of locally sourced goodies wrapped and packaged with the most sustainable options available. We will keep you informed of the contents as they are gathered, with each item serving as an example of how you can do microthings to help protect the environment, slow climate change and maybe even improve your own health.

So what (else) could you do?

Maybe carry a reusable water bottle (and help get commercial outlets used to providing water) or choose reusable wipes (baby, cleaning, makeup). Or how about switching to reusable cloth nappies – that would score you megapoints!!

We hope to send out a regular newsletter full of easy switches, tips and ideas to help you not just reduce your plastic waste but also make a move on other fronts. Please provide your email address (see ours above) to confirm your consent to receiving the e-newsletter.

Needless to say, any articles and suggestions submitted by our subscribers will have a good chance of being published, so don’t hold back!

But we know time and convenience are valuable, so just start by doing something.

The possibilities are (unfortunately) almost endless …

In particular, please do encourage family and friends to take the pledge as well (and get in touch via the email address) so we can build momentum!

Thanks for making this mini commitment. Now it’s up to us to inspire you to greater things!!

In taking the pledge and / or subscribing to the newsletter, you grant us reasonable usage of your name and address in line with the strict privacy guidelines of the GDPR. We will only use such data for the purposes indicated above.
