WRAP receives funding from Wilko carrier bag charge

6th October 2015

WRAP is delighted to be named by Wilko as one of the four national charities to help drive its charitable aims, from the new 5p carrier bag charge which has been introduced in England. 

Carrier bag funding from Wilko will provide WRAP with vital funding to support its work on waste reduction and resource efficiency – helping find ways that we can reduce our impact on the environment.

Liz Goodwin OBE, CEO said:

“Securing this generous new stream of funding from Wilko will be a tremendous help towards furthering WRAP’s charitable aims, helping to find new ways to move towards a more sustainable, resource efficient world. WRAP has an ambitious five year plan that will help the transition towards a world where resources are used sustainably, and this development will really help maximise our impact”.
