WHAT YOU CAN DO AS A BUSINESS

As a business there are a variety of ways you can positively contribute to the impact on the local and global environment.

The majority of items that volunteers pick up from our local beaches include single use plastic items such as straws, stirrers, plastic bottles, plastic bags and condiment sachets.

By ensuring that suitable, sustainable alternatives are readily available to your customers, you will be helping to bring about the change in behaviour that our society needs.

Your local Surfers Against Sewage Plastic Free Coastlines Community Leader can help you become plastic free by following these simple steps:

  • Eliminate, or find alternatives, for three single use plastic items within your business

  • Consider how you many be able to eliminate or replace all other single use items

  • Once your business has been approved as ‘plastic free’, you will be able to promote yourselves as an SAS Plastic Free Business and display your certificate and window sticker.

 

IN THE TOURIST TRADE? HERE’S THE CAMPAIGN FOR YOU

Our Plastic Free Holiday Project aims to capture the minds of tourists visiting North Devon in order to raise awareness of the plastic issue, reduce the amount of plastic consumed, clear waste plastic from the environment and ensure that is it recycled or disposed of properly. We have created two sources of information for accommodation providers to distribute to their customers: A PDF with information on what visitors to the area should know and bring when visiting. Plus leaflets to place in the accommodation which contains information on what Plastic Free North Devon are working towards, and what tourists can do to help

If you are interested in being part of this project then please get in touch by emailing visitors@plasticfreenorthdevon.org

BOSTON TEA PARTY

Boston Tea Party is a cafe with ethics at its very core. Everything they buy is scrutinised to ensure it’s the best choice for them, their customers and the environment. They have made some fantastic decisions such as banning takeaway coffee cups, running all their cafes on renewable energy, using anaerobic digestion to dispose of food waste and donating any leftover edible food to the homeless at the end of the day. These guys strive to go above and beyond in everything that they do and that’s why we are so proud to receive a 10p donation from every takeaway coffee sold at their Barnstaple branch. Thank you for leading by example and showing others that putting the planet first and running a successful business does work.
