Pressure to reduce the use of plastics – especially single-use plastics – has been fast, helped by the recent David Attenborough Blue Planet documentary. After an excellent Green Drinks talk by Andrew Coleman from Surfers Against Sewage in Nov 18, we’ve decided to take the bull by the horns. We’ll soon be launching a local campaign for Steyning, Bramber and Beeding to become ‘Plastic Free Communities’ based around the Surfers Against Sewage model.
A series of working groups have been set up to take it forward. They will be looking at talking with local businesses, working with schools, churches and other local groups, linking up with our three Parish Councils, and running events to engage the wider community. If you’re interested in getting involved, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Otherwise, stay tuned for further news!
