Single-use plastic campaign: an apology

Date posted: 18 May 2018

On 2 May we could not wait to launch our call to you all to contact the Treasury on the proposed plastic tax. We got a little bit too excited about it, and accidentally sent an email to some of our supporters who had not asked to be contacted by us in relation to news regarding campaigns, and who only wanted to hear from us about volunteering and beach cleans.

If you did receive this email in error, please accept our sincere apologies. We could not write to you again once we’d realised our mistake, precisely because you did not want to be contacted on campaigns!

We have let the ICO (the regulatory body on data protection) know that this has happened and are taking all necessary action to make sure that this cannot happen again.
