The plastic bag levy was introduced first in Wales followed by Northern Ireland, Scotland then England in October 2016.
Here at Caterleisure we have pledged to donate the profit made from the sale of carrier bags to the Young Peoples Trust for the Environment.
The Trust is a charity which aims to encourage young people’s understanding of the environment and of the need for sustainability.
They help to provide a real awareness of environmental problems, such as climate change, disappearing wildlife, the pollution of soil, air and water and the destruction of rainforests and wetlands.
“Like many companies we decided to donate the funds to an environmental charity. The Trust is a leading education and conservation organisation that specialises in projects that enable young people to learn more about looking after our natural world. As a company we are aware of how our products are manufactured and are continually reviewing our disposables with our suppliers to ensure where possible they are biodegradable or recyclable.” Christine Thorpe, Managing Director
