McFly member Dougie Poynter brings eco battle to Kent

Environmental campaigner and member of McFly, Dougie Poynter, will be signing copies of his book 'Plastic Sucks! You Can Make a Difference' at Bluewater shopping centre next month.

The McFly bassist - a keen conservationist and key player in the campaign to ban microplastics in the UK - will be at Waterstone book store, in the shopping centre near Greenhithe, on Saturday September 7 at noon.

His book is said to be a digestible and accessible guide on how young eco-warriors can save the planet, and includes arty infographics, easy to follow tips and pages for your own notes.
