Trafford Council is again proving its green credentials by introducing eco-friendly cards across its 12 libraries.
The biodegradable cards are being brought into the service to eventually replace the plastic variety which are currently in use.
The Council has already made a number of changes across its service areas to cut down on the use of single-use plastics and this is the latest example.
Later this year, any new library members requesting a card will be given a biodegradable one. The idea is to keep giving the cards out until they eventually replace the plastic variety.
It has been an environmentally aware summer all round at Trafford Libraries, with recent children’s activities including making seedbombs, birdfeeders and bike decorations to link in with this year’s Wild World Heroes themed summer reading challenge. Sessions include painting with nature and themed storytimes – find full details by clicking here.
Cllr Liz Patel, Trafford Council’s Executive Member for Culture and Leisure, said:
“Trafford Council has committed itself to supporting a greener and more sustainable future for the borough.
“We have now decided to extend that policy to our library service later this year by introducing eco-friendly cards to new members. It is extremely important that we all adopt a more sustainable lifestyle and cut down on the use of plastic in everyday life.”
