Our work with Co-op

Wildlife is still vanishing from Wales, but with your help we can stop this.

Have you ever wondered what happens to all those five pences that we pay when we've forgotten our shopping bags? In Wales, all branches of The Co-op donate the single-use carrier bag charge to Wildlife Trusts Wales so that we can continue our work to protect wildlife for the future.

Working in partnership with the Co-op we deliver the Welsh Wildlife Heroes project which is themed around health and wellbeing and encourages people to get more active in their community through volunteering. The Co-op is an active partner and engages its members, customers and colleagues to support the project. Visit www.coop.co.uk for more information.
