Plastic free communities is a campaign run by Surfers Against Sewage. It provides a set of instructions for a town to attain “plastic free” status. This campaign is a pathway to ridding Bridport of single-use plastic and by increasing public awareness, a means to reduce the use of plastic in general.
Over the past few months, despite the impact of the Covid19 pandemic, Plastic Free Bridport has been busy developing a strategy and has gained a number of allies from other organisations. It has begun recruiting businesses to join in and commit to replacing items of plastic with alternatives.
Bridport can earn “plastic free status” by achieving certain numbers of allies and business backers, but the ultimate goal is to remove as much plastic from our community, from its land and beaches, as possible.
We are hoping to show (via Vimeo) the film, The Story of Plastic, in February. It will be invite only to those on our mailing list, but those interested should contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
