Case Study Template

Not only do we want you to make a pledge to make a positive change to your habits, we also want to hear about success stories that have already happened (you can choose one or the other, we don't mind). 

To do this, we want to share your case studies that highlight reductions in plastic waste. What has your organisation done? What have you done as an individual? Have procedures changed? Have your educated your colleagues?
