Plastic Free Plymouth

The Plastic Free Plymouth Campaign

Were you inspired by Blue Planet II? We were ! For the last four years we’ve been working with Surfers Against Sewage Plastic Free Communities project to gain Plastic Free Community status for the city.

We achieved the status for the Waterfront area in June 2018 ad then went on to gain citywide status a year later in June 2019. We still work closely with SAS and with the citywide Plan for Plastic to tackle single-use plastic wherever possible through the Interreg funded Preventing Plastic Pollution project.

Helping us out we already have over 300 businesses (our Pioneers), Community Groups and individuals (our Ambassadors) and schools (our Champions) but we are still welcoming new partners.

This page provides all you’ll need to take part – the pledge form we’d love you to sign up to, details of our new Rewards scheme, forthcoming  workshops and events and links to both the SAS campaign and the Plymouth Plan for Plastics.

If you’d like to become a Pioneer, Ambassador or Champion please fill in our Pledge form. To automatically become a Bronze Reward holder, have a think about the three single-use plastics you can eliminate from daily use and three things you could do to take your commitment even further. If you would like to take your environmental pledges further please let us know. Details of the Silver, Gold and Diamond Rewards as well as word copies of the pledge form are also available from
