What’s a Plastic Attack:
Plastic Attack started in England as a form of civil disobedience and shows in a very simple way how we as a society waste precious resources, that leads to a catastrophic pollution and an ecological crisis. This unnecessary waste is not only very dangerous for the Nature, Wildlife and Humandkind; it’s also very expensive to get rid of it.
How is a plastic attack done?
The group meest outside the supermarket holding banners, hand out informative flyers and talk to other shoppers in order to raise awareness of the cause. We then encourage the other everyday people coming to the supermarket to do their shopping to join in the event on the day. We then enter the shop, fill their trolleys with the general items they require for their weeks food shopping and head to the checkouts. After we pay, we fill transfer our food in reusable Packaging (Veggie-Bags, Glasjars, Tupperwares). We put all the disposable plastic packaging in the trolley and bring them back to the supermarket. The management at the store are then informed that the plastic packaging will be left behind as a direct protest about the overuse of this unnecessary waste.
