We said YES to help the Plastic Free North Devon Visitor Campaign 2019
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 they 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!
