The first Kick the Plastic discussion evening was held in November of last year, and we were extremely fortunate to have Professor Jamie Woodward from the University of Manchester as the guest speaker. Professor Woodward and his team from the University Geography Department had carried out a number of studies on the levels of micro plastics in the river systems around Greater Manchester. Find out more about this research here.
Our next event is being held on Thursday, 04 April at The Heaton Sports Club. This will be a great opportunity to find out more about what is going on in the Heatons to tackle plastic waste, to share ideas and information. We are very much looking forward to hearing from our guest speaker for the evening, Corin Bell of PlasticFree GM.
The evening begins at 6pm and runs until 8:30pm. All are welcome to attend – this event is open to businesses and members of the community. Tickets (free) can be booked via eventbrite.
