write to them
Whether its signing a petition to ban plastic bags, or writing to your local cafe asking them to stop using plastic straws, or an email to your local MPs asking them to switch from fossil fuels to renwable energy, you, as an individual, have the power to influence change!
Send an E-mail
If your local cafe or supermarket is not doing what you want them to do, write them an email. If enough of us contact them, they will eventually have to listen to us.
Use Social Media
If you aren't getting anywhere with your emailing, commenting, naming and shaming by tagging targeted businesses or organisations on social media will get their attention. By publicly commenting on posts, you reach out to their social media followers and potentially a wide audience.
Contact your MP
If you want to contact your local MPs, this is a very useful website. Just type in your postcode and they will give you the contact details to all your local MPs: www.writetothem.com
