Modbury The Facts

Mrs Recycle with her reusable Modbury shopping bag - Do you have one ?

The first village in South Devon to become totally plastic carrier bag free - I got one of their reusable bags.

The UK town of Modbury in Devon became the first in Europe to ban plastic carrier bags. In 2008 the town's 43 shops rallied together to go plastic bag free. Traders both large and small have joined the campaign --- including the local supermarket. On an average day it gave away as many as 1,000 carrier bags.
