In order to obtain Plastic Free status, businesses need to remove at least three different items of single-use plastic and replace with sustainable alternatives.
Removing the option to purchase and/or use single-use plastics is the easiest way to avoid them. Making suitable, sustainable alternatives readily available to customers will bring about a change in behaviour and reduce the amount of throwaway plastic in our society.
Is your business up to the challenge?
If you own or work for a local business and would like to reduce single-use plastics in the work place, please get in touch. To make the change easier, we can try and help you source sustainable alternatives. Check out our useful links for some ideas to get you started.
The following businesses have already achieved the status by working with us, and others are getting there:
Christine’s Sustainable Supermarket, The Swan, Brown’s Hardware, Woolley Grange, The Georgian Lodge, Iford Manor, Coffee Etc, and The Cheese Shop.
If you think your business has now eliminated three different single-use plastic products from your range, do let us know so we can get you a plaque and certificate!
