A campaign atanepitng to eradicate the use of plastic packaging in local shops has received the backing of a Powys County Council Cabinet member.

Plastic Free Powys plans to target the Morrisons supermarket in Newtown as part of its campaign to see retailers stop using what it says is wasteful and environmentally unfriendly packaging on groceries and products.
 
Cllr Liam Fitzpatrick, Cabinet Member for Highways, has given his support to the campaign.
 
“I’m very lucky to travel this county every week, checking roads and talking to people about our communities and neighbourhoods,” said Cllr Fitzpatrick.
 
“However, it depresses me daily to see our beautiful countryside covered in litter and plastic debris from burger cartons, food trays and plastic drink containers and bottles. It’s all unnecessary and starts in our food stores, supermarkets and shops and that is why I attended the launch of the ‘Plastic Free Powys’ campaign.
 
“I hope that my Cabinet colleagues will join me in giving their support to this worthwhile campaign to dramatically reduce the amount of plastic package in our beautiful county.”

The campaign is already supported by local Powys county councillor Elwyn Vaughan (pictured on the right)
