Plastic Attack = Going to a supermarket with a group of people, doing your normal shopping, and leaving all plastic packaging behind in the shop.

The goal of this is to raise awareness of the global problem of plastic that we face.

Secondly, we want to put pressure on supermarkets to get their suppliers to stop using unnecessary plastic packaging.

The plastic attack will be communicated with the selected supermarket before hand to ensure the adequate measures can be taken to ensure the smooth running of the attack.

More info will follow soon about which supermarket we will target.

All activities will be conducted in a peaceful manner.

NOTE: You may wonder what the point is because the shops will probably not even recycle the plastic we leave behind. But look where recycling has gotten us? We are literally up to our necks in plastic. Norway is apparently pretty good at recycling, but there are still whales found full of Rema 100 shopping bags?! Yes, recycling is better than nothing, but the problem can only be fixed at the production and distribution level, where the plastic is used in the first place! ♥ ♥ :) :)
