Aiming to reduce single use plastic in Whitstable

Plastic Free Whitstable

Plastic Free Whitstable

PFW is a group of concerned local residents trying to reduce single-use plastic in our community. We started meeting in early 2018 and by the end of the year we had achieved Plastic-Free status from Surfers Against Sewage, the first place in Kent to do so.

Our objectives include:

  • Working with Canterbury City Council to eliminate single-use plastics in council-controlled venues and events and encourage their support for plastic-free communities
  • Encouraging and offering support to businesses to replace single-use plastic with suitable alternatives
  • Spreading the word through community organisations, schools and public places
  • Organising and participating in events including monthly beach cleans with our partner organisation Whitstable’s Marine Environment Group
  • Reporting to a steering group of community stakeholders on a yearly basis
