Prime Minister supports Maidenhead Challenging Plastic

Prime Minister and Maidenhead MP Theresa May supported the work of Maidenhead Challenging Plastic in a special visit last week.

Visiting The Green Parrot, the PM filled up her reusable bottle and found out more about Refill, a national scheme that the cafe has signed up too.

More than 20 establishments across Maidenhead have signed up to the scheme.

Later, the PM and Mr May visited Saints Cafe to see how the business is using less single use plastic as well as participating in Refill.

Donna Stimson, co-leader of Maidenhead Challenging Plastic, said: “With the environmental challenges we face this initiative is so welcome in Maidenhead, everyone wants to see a cleaner town and less single use plastic.”

Thanks to the Maidenhead Advertiser for covering the visit!
