Local MP launches ‘Is Plastic Fantastic?’ campaign

Stephanie Peacock, local MP for Barnsley East, has launched the ‘Is Plastic Fantastic’ campaign in partnership with schools in her local community.

The campaign, a holiday project for local students, aims to educate on the dangers of single-use plastic.

It promotes the use of environmentally friendly alternatives, from jute bags to reusable straws and cups.

Said Stephanie Pictured): “Since I was elected to represent Barnsley East, I’ve made it a priority to visit our fantastic family of local schools. I’m impressed by how engaged and conscious a lot of young people are when it comes to our environment. Those children and the work being done in our schools inspired this idea.

“As a former teacher, I know how helpful a project in the summer holidays can be, and I hope this is something all the family can get involved in to learn together about how we can better protect our beautiful local environment here in Barnsley.”
