Dorset Council, in responding to Climate Change concerns, has declared a Climate & Ecological Emergency see their website page
In March 2020 Bradpole Parish Council adopted a Climate, Environment & Ecology Action Plan Framework: Interactive BPC Climate Action-Plan-Mar 2020 . It is anticipated that this will involve public participation by the residents of Bradpole Civil Parish in a working group with some of Bradpole’s Councillors.
Please contact us if you are interested in becoming involved in this issue which is important to all of our futures.
Report to Council October 2020: Bradpole Parish Council Climate Change report
SINGLE USE PLASTIC (SUP)
Within the Bradpole Climate, Environment & Ecology Plan (Clause 1 d) is a commitment by the Parish Council to eliminate single use plastic in its activities.
Whilst plastic is an important part of our 21st c. lives (medical, safety protection and much more) single use plastics, and the quantities in which they are used, is a big problem. A plastic bag for instance is used on average for 15 minutes, yet could take up to 300 years to fragment.
We encourage individuals, businesses, community groups, in fact everyone in Bradpole Civil Parish and beyond, to consider what they can do.
“We can make simple lifestyle changes; use refillable drinks containers, use our own shopping bags, buy locally produced fresh vegetables, meat and fish instead of plastic wrapped and imported products etc.”
