Plastic Free Communities
I am the Plastic Free Community lead for Perranporth – heading up the local action group working with the parish council to improve signage and recycling infrastructure and enable provision of water refill stations etc…
Organising Community Beach Cleans and lobbying local government to reduce single use plastics.
Working directly with local businesses and schools within the scheme – encouraging community projects which foster collaboration to reduce carbon footprint such as at the plastic free farmers market.
Attending events to consolidate and communicate changes in legislation and to influence change for sustainable living.
I am also part of the advisory group of Plastic Free Community leads working to take this campaign forwards and embed the concept of a circular economy.
In addition I am a Litter Heroes Ambassador with Keep Britain Tidy – and while this is a different scheme, organising community beach and stream cleaning / litter picks overlaps in many ways with my role as a Plastic Free Community Lead and SAS Rep.
