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

If you would like further information please message or email

Looking forward to seeing you ❤️

Thanks to the everyday heroes from @unitedutilities & our other partner water companies for sorting out our sewers.

#Whitstable lifts up the waves to demonstrate rising sea levels. Save the beach we love or let the sea rise over the town? There is another choice, stop #ClimateChange #RiseUp @XRebellionUK

If you want to reduce litter, please support the cafes that reduce their single use plastic. Borrow a #WhitstableCup and return it to any cafe here

⚠️EXPOSED: These 12 brands are behind OVER HALF of UK plastic & packaging pollution. #ReturnToOffender

Big brands *must* stop pumping out so much plastic. But they'll only do so if we expose their huge pollution problem.

🛑RT to expose brands & force action. #PlasticFreeJuly

Thanks @WhitstableFM for my mostly plastic-free delivery this morning. Rumours that #whitstable Farmers Market might reopen soon. We miss you #shoplocal

We've been out and about in Whitstable today putting up the posters for our new anti-litter campaign.

More will be going out early next week at the Tankerton end of the town, as well along the seafront in Herne Bay.
