JANE BROPHY LEADS CHARGE AGAINST SINGLE USE PLASTICS
Following on from her support of Trafford Green Party's local motion on Single Use Plastics in Trafford, Cllr Jane Brophy took the mantle straight to her parties Autumn Conference in Brighton this week when summating the debate on plastic use and calling for the party to support and drive change forward.
''It is vital that we link reducing plastics to our strong Lib Dem principles on sustainable development.''
She continued in supporting and calling for an international treaty to deal with plastics.
''Calling on a legally binding international treaty on plastics reduction and offering assistance to developing countries.''
Cllr Brophy continued by linking plastics and climate change.
''People are increasingly scared of growing environmental threats and dangers to our planet. Eliminating plastics from our lives, and encouraging others, is something we can all do to mitigate these dangers.''
The motion passed with overwhelming support from delegates present, confirming the parties commitment to the environment, and continuing the hard work already done by many Liberal Democrat Councillors the length of the country.
