Aiming to reduce single use plastic in 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

Eliminating #singleuseplastic #Whitstable. First Plastic Free community in Kent. Working with @sascampaigns Surfers Against Sewage. #refill #reuse #recycle
We can all make a difference by how we consume. Don't forget #whitstable has a plastic-free shop Vita Stores @FrankWhitstable where you can pre-order and get deliveries. Or step inside the beautiful shop, bring your containers, and choose!
Across the UK, 89% of us already recycle and this means more of us are helping the environment than ever before. To maximise your efforts, we’ve put together this reminder of what can go in your blue and red bin (or paper and card insert). #RecycleWeek
