SPAR hits The Chester Chronicle with Plastic Bag Initiative

Home » News » SPAR hits The Chester Chronicle!

You will know that we reported earlier this week on Thom Morton's continuing efforts to reduce the use of plastic bags within the village.

The story is obviously close to your hearts because we had 500 hits on this feature alone!

'Tattenhallers' have reduced their use of plastic bags issued at SPAR by at least 50% and the monies raised from the introduction of the 5p charge for single use carrier bags has led to Thom donating over £1400 to TWiG (Tattenhall Wildlife Group).

Reporters at The Chester Chronicle have obviously wised up to his efforts too.

The story is now featured online

Remember, you saw it here first!!
