Patrick and Nicky, Distington.

It takes hundreds of years for a plastic bottle to bio-degrade after it is thrown away.

“They just use too much packaging these days, years ago we didn’t need all that. It’s plastics that are a particular problem as they take so long to biodegrade and we don’t have the facilities to recycle them.”
Distington resident.
