The Plastic Free campaign has arrived in Highcliffe!

You have probably heard a lot in the news about the problems of single-use plastic and microplastics. It is a problem that affects every community and has a huge impact on oceans, wildlife and food sources.

It is something that everybody can do something about - no matter how small. It's not about removing every piece of plastic from your life, it's about making small changes and removing unnecessary, single-use plastics, one piece at a time.

There is something for everyone:

  • Individuals - Use the Individual Action Plan and check off the switches you have made
  • Businesses - Use the Business Toolkit for advice, tips and to learn how to achieve the Plastic Free Champion award to display on your premises
  • Community Groups - Take the Plastic Free Pledge and help to spread the word about the plastic problem and your commitment to reducing single-use plastics in your activities

To find out more and get involved please get in touch through the website, www.plasticfreehighcliffe.org.uk, by email to plasticfreehighcliffe@gmail.com or through our Facebook, Twitter or Instagram pages.

The Plastic Free Highcliffe team are looking for Plastic Free Champions.

Is your business already making changes to remove single-use plastic or have you been thinking about it but haven't yet started? Now's the time! We can help you to achieve a Plastic Free Champion award that you can display in your premises to show your customers that you are committed to being part of the solution to the global plastic problem.

To get involved, you need to remove three pieces of single-use plastic from the business. This is easier for some businesses than others so there is a toolkit that we can provide to give you tips and advice.

The award can be applied retrospectively, so if you have already made three changes let us know!
