THE AIM IS ZERO WASTE
In 2017 we showed the film ‘A Plastic Ocean’ . Two local groups started up campaigns to get local cafes and restaurants to stop using plastic straws, and other single use plastic. See their work click here for St Albans Refuse the Straw; Click here for Harpenden Refuse the Straw.

- Do you recycle items not collected by the Council’s recycling? For example one of our members recycles plastic milk bottle tops for charity and another takes working electrical items to a local charity shop)?
- Do you buy an item particularly for its reduced packaging? If so, what is it? For example a brand of tea as it doesn’t contain a foil sleeve to keep it ‘fresh’.
Please click here to email us with your ideas and local experience. These will be collated and uploaded on the website so that we can all help reduce landfill!
We have screened TRASHED, a film about global waste, The Clean Bin Project, and Just Eat It – a film about food waste.
Following our successful screening of the award winning documentary, ‘The Clean Bin Project’ on World Environment Day, Transition St Albans and StAlbans Friends of the Earth have involved residents in our “Do One More Thing’ campaign to cut their own household waste.
