Selfridges is among the businesses, organisations and institutions that are calling for London’s newly re-elected Mayor Sadiq Khan to lead the way in tackling single-use plastic water bottle pollution in the capital. The department store has added its voice to the latest appeal by the #OneLess campaign. Selfridges has supported the ongoing campaign against single-use bottles since 2016 and has a public water fountain outside its Oxford Street store.
Surfers Against Sewage, Zoological Society of London, Thames21 and Keep Britain Tidy have all signed the joint statement that urges Sadiq to take critical action to end single-use plastic water bottle pollution. The statement calls for the Mayor to ensure sufficient and equal access to public refill points across the city and for the eradication of single-use plastic water bottles in Greater London Authority buildings, plus support for London businesses to do the same.
The #OneLess campaign wants to see London promoted as a leader in eradicating single use bottles as well as highlighting the harm inflicted on oceans from such plastic.
