The best 5p charge ever
“Animals can eat them thinking they’re jellyfish. And we’ve collected corpses that when they’re dissected their stomachs are filled with plastic, so they’ve just starved to death.” Environmentalists quote.
Note – other plastic bag suppliers are available
For years, we took them for granted – the polythene bags in which we carried our shopping home – we would next see them hanging from trees, suspended from telegraph wires, littering our hedgerows and washed up on our beaches – not that individuals generally put them there on purpose, no, they would just blow about as airborne rubbish until they found a natural resting place.
Then earlier this year the 5p charge was introduced and already the results are dramatic- the plastic bag charge has helped clean up our beaches the number found on our beaches has dropped by almost 40% the Marine Conservation Society advises that where last year there thousands of volunteers were collecting on average eleven plastic bags collected per 100 metres of beach – this year the corresponding number is seven – surely a vindication of the 5p charge
But globally, the UK’s improvements are still a drop in the ocean – as an estimated 500 billion single-use plastic bags are used worldwide every year.
To use a phrase from another well-known supermarket chain “ every little bit helps” which is why when you chose our “First Class installation Service” for your new front door not only will we take away your old front door and all the packaging for your new one and we dispose of them in an environmentally friendly manner – we hate litter lined hedgerows here at Global Door and we would not wish to think that we were in any way the cause of creating any such unnecessary eyesores. All of our installation teams have pretty precise instructions as to what is required from in both the disposing of waste and the due care and attention which they give to our client’s homes – the system seems to work as we have many complimentary comments from our customers on TRUST Pilot confirming the care they took with the installation. – reviews such as –
Absolutely brilliant company to deal with. From placing the order to completing the installation was very smooth and was kept informed every step of the way. The installers were fantastic on the day and everything was installed to a very high standard.
The door and side panels I had installed are excellent quality and look great. I loved designing the door and panels and seeing the finished product. Have had many neighbours commenting on how superb my front now looks.
Would definitely recommend Global Doors cannot fault them at all. I am
so pleased with my installation I shall be using them again.”
Hera at Global Door we are never going to have the answers to the worlds environmental problems but we would hope that in our own quiet way we are doing our best to create a better world for our children and our children’s children.
