Islington becomes London’s first ‘low plastic zone’
The zone will also eventually cover Haringey, Camden, Barnet, Enfield, Hackney and Waltham Forest
Retailers in London have pledged to reduce the number of products they sell in single-use plastic, as part of London’s first ‘low plastic zone’.
The zone was launched by North London Waste Authority (NLWA) in the Cowcross Street area of Islington this month.
According to NLWA, more than 75% of businesses in the area have permanently reduced the amount of single-use plastic they give to customers.
The low plastic zone will extend to include stores in the boroughs of Haringey, Camden, Barnet, Enfield, Hackney and Waltham Forest.
NLWA chair Clyde Loakes said: “Retailers want to reduce their environmental impact, not only because it’s the right thing to do, but because it’s good for business.”
