Plastic Free North Devon are piloting an inflatables collection and recycling scheme in Croyde this summer and we are taking part along with many other campsites in the village.
Each summer we are left with sizeable quantities of waste that we try to sort and recycle as much as possible. The detrimental impact plastic waste is having on oceans and coastlines is now increasingly evident in our area and awareness is growing around how to try and reduce it.
This is one such idea that not only reduces the plastic waste going to landfill but also reuses the plastic and gives it new functional purpose extending it’s lifespan.
ABOUT PLASTIC FREE NORTH DEVON
Plastic Free North Devon is a local environmental movement started by volunteers who want to reduce the impact of plastic pollution on the environment in North Devon and beyond. Working with local councils, community groups, businesses, schools, residents and visitors we aim to
Raise awareness of the issue
Reduce the amount of plastic consumed
Clear waste plastic from the environment
Ensure that it is recycled or disposed of appropriately
If we all make small changes, great things can happen! PFND are happy to share all of their knowledge and experience, so ask them about how you could help your community go Plastic Free.
