The problem with plastic

In Ireland we produce over one million tonnes of waste packaging a year, and the volume is increasing. The sheer amount of plastic we are producing feels overwhelming. Much of the plastic we use every day is not necessary. Because we throw so much away, plastic pollution is a global environmental problem. With one change you can be part of the solution to plastic pollution.  Check out the following website for lots of ideas: https://www.plasticfreejuly.org/

Climate Change Conversation

The Minister for the Environment, Climate and Communications, Eamon Ryan, recently launched the Climate Conversation 2022. People across the country are invited to have their say on how we can all play our part in securing our sustainable future. The Climate Conversation 2022 will feed into, and shape, the next iteration of the Climate Action Plan. Follow this link to make your contribution:   Climate Conversations 2022 – Department of the Environment, Climate and Communications – Citizen Space

Planting
We would love to see you on Monday night June 6th, at 7pm, when we will be finishing our planting, doing some small clean up jobs and keeping an eye on litter.
Birdhill is looking great for Summer, but we will all need to be extra vigilant as the Judging time for the National Competition begins next weekend. Please pick up any litter you see or notify the committee of any bigger items which need removing.

Crisp Packet Recycling
Further to recent news that the facility for the recycling of crisp packets and chocolate wrappers is no longer available in our Information Hub (Phone Box) in the village, members of the community are reminded that these items can now be placed in your domestic recycling bin. Soft plastics are now accepted in the recycling bin due to advancements in technologies at recycling facilities in Ireland and access to new markets where this material can be processed. This includes all plastic films from your shopping, plastic bottles from milk, water and beverages; plastic tubs, containers and food trays; yogurt pots as well as soap, shampoo, conditioner and shower gel bottles. A full list is on Repak’s ‘What can I recycle’ page  https://repak.ie/recycling/what-can-i-recycle/

Newsletters
Click here to read the February Tidy Towns newsletter.   We recommended it for your perusal as it keeps our Community in touch with initiatives eg. There is a generous tree sponsorship offer from EZ living in this one.
