Solihull refill shop calls on residents to reuse Just One Bottle in fight against single-use plastics

A SOLIHULL refill shop is calling on residents to reuse Just One Bottle to help reduce plastic waste.

Solihull Zero Wasters wants to reduce the reliance on single-use plastics for household items from cleaning fluids to food and toiletries across Solihull in a bid to live more sustainably.

Alison Lonnon, an assistant at the shop, said: “Solihull has its net zero plan to reduce its emissions to zero by 2041.

“Residents and businesses will need to make changes if we are to achieve this.

“By consumers being more mindful of what they’re buying and the waste they’re creating we can all help work towards this goal.”

The Hobs Moat Road shop joined the national Just One Bottle campaign, which launched on January 1, to show the impact of reusing single-use plastic can have on the environment.

Jen Faulds, manager of the Solihull shop, said: “Many members of the public feel powerless against the effects of climate change and that they are not able to contribute in the fight against it.

“The rates of climate anxiety are rising fast.

“This campaign is about empowering individuals and showing people that together, with one small change, we can all contribute to the fight against climate change.”
