Plastic Free Felixstowe’s objective is to reduce the use of plastics in and around the town in response to the damage it causes to oceans and marine life through events, education and business engagement.
Founded in February 2018, Plastic Free Felixstowe have quickly grown their membership to over 1000 members, have gained charity (CIC) status, gained financial support from the local councils and forged close links with the Port of Felixstowe.
Plastic Free Felixstowe are encouraging local shops and supermarkets to conduct business differently, engaging with local primary school children in school assemblies to raise awareness of the catastrophe which is imminent unless we change attitudes towards plastic consumption. The group also organised a fun awareness day aimed at children, local councillors and press.
