We have had bookmarks printed which our local library and the book shop will put into every book; and the local Arts Centre, the traders at the market, and several stores will give out. As well as listing six facts about plastic, the bookmarks are printed with HINTS AND TIPS to try to help people to remember to take their reusable bags with them.

  • Say “no thanks” to plastic bags
  • Try to always carry a compact reusable bag with you
  • Remember to take reusable bags with you on shopping trips
  • If you forget – ask for a cardboard box
  • When you’ve unpacked, leave them ready for their next job:
    • By the door
    • In your coat pocket
    • With your wallet and keys

We hope they help. So many people have bags but haven’t yet got into the habit of carrying them with them all the time.

BbC also hope that when you go into the Banchory shops you will TELL THEM you are supporting the campaign and that you DO NOT WANT them to routinely put shopping into plastic bags.

As I mentioned yesterday, our local MPs are supporting us, but it would also be a help if you sent an email to the Scottish Parliament telling them that you want them to take action on plastic bags.
