THE MAYOR of Stratford has stepped out to show his support of the climate emergency.
Tony Jackson visited The Refill Box in Shrieves Walk as it became mandatory for face coverings to be worn in shops.
He said: “I am sure many people will initially find it strange to cover their face but it is important that we continue to take whatever steps are necessary to contain the virus. However, with so much focus on Covid-19 it is important we don’t lose sight of other ongoing challenges. It was a pleasure to meet Tasha from The Refill Box who is doing her bit to address the climate emergency.”
Natasha Wicks from The Refill Box said “Our world is drowning in plastic, it is choking on the chemicals we make, and something needs to change. We aim to bring low waste living and affordability together, without compromising quality or ethics. Simply buy what you need, when you need it, without plastic packaging and excessive waste.”
