Welcome to Plastic Free Helston!
Plastic Free Helston, which is part of the Surfer’s Against Sewerage Plastic Free Community Network, is committed to the reduction of single-use plastic within the town. The Steering Group, which consists of volunteers representing different aspects of the community, from businesses and community groups to individuals and the Town Council, is leading the campaign to make Helston single-use plastic free. It’s not about removing all plastic from our lives. It’s about kicking our addiction to avoidable single-use plastic, and changing the system that produces it.
Plastic Free Helston cannot do this alone and everyone has a part to play. Individuals can sign up for an action plan to reduce the single-use plastic in their daily lives, businesses can become plastic free champions, community groups can spread the plastic free message as community allies and schools can sign up to the Surfers Against Sewerage Plastic Free Schools Campaign.
So far Plastic Free Helston has held three litter picks, took part in two youth engagement events held by Helston Town Council to raise awareness of the campaign and continues to contact local businesses with the first plastic free champions now signed up. Details of plastic free champions and all future events will be publicised on the Plastic Free Helston social media accounts.
Please get in touch if you would like to be involved.
