Shaping Bright Futures Together

Visit from Harriett Baldwin

Our Envirominnies Eco Team were delighted by a visit from our local MP, Mrs Harriett Baldwin.  They were able to voice their concerns about the future of the planet, and did so with great eloquence.  Concerns raised were:-

  • Overuse of Palm Oil
  • Sustainability of trees
  • Pollution and CO2 emissions
  • Responsibility of manufacturers to ensure that plastic drinks bottles are properly recycled
  • Litter in the sea and space
  • Oil spills and pollution affecting wildlife
  • Plastic entering the food chain, through fish
  • Icebergs melting, the sea rising affecting land and crops
  • Mass migrations with land becoming uninhabitable
  • Animals and plants becoming extinct

The group would like to thank Mrs Baldwin for listening to their concerns.
