In an effort to mobilise the UK Supermarkets to cut the amount of single-use plastic entering the environment or landfill – in the form of cheap and nasty plastic toys (tat) on children’s comics and magazines – we are posting letters from pupils to the CEOs of the four leading supermarkets: Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Asda and Morrisons.

Amy speaking to the super-passionate pupils of Brookfields Primary.
We are working with the Create Partnership Trust in Birmingham and their amazing pupils and staff on a purposeful educational letter-writing campaign.
Every day, a letter written by a Create Trust Academy pupil will be photocopied and posted to the BIG FOUR supermarket CEOs.
We will be recording and feeding back the responses (or lack of) from the CEOs in the ‘receipt’ below. Our aim is to meet with one of the supermarket CEOs to discuss the KAPtat campaign and how their supermarket can lead the way to make a change that will help cut 0.5 billion pieces of plastic ‘tat’ per year.
