Planet Wimborne supports campaign to ban disposable BBQs

Planet Wimborne has written to several businesses, including BP, Shell and Esso service stations, Co-op and McColl’s, asking them if they stock disposable BBQs and if so, to consider taking them off their shelves. Planet Wimborne hopes these businesses take the positive step to stop selling disposable BBQs and also sign up to support the Litter Free Dorset campaign.
