Acting on plastic waste

This summer MHSG is campaigning to persuade local people and businesses to cut use of single-use plastics.  The Blue Planet 2 series and contributing scientist Dr Steve Simpson’s talk to MHSG last autumn made clear the horrific impact of plastics on marine life – action is needed fast.

Our volunteers are surveying Muswell Hill cafes and restaurants to ask them to stop supplying one-use cups, bottles, straws and food containers.

If you can help the campaign, please get in touch.  Just an hour or two is useful to assist on a street stall, prepare campaign materials or share on social media.  Please email us at to find out more.
