Surfers Against Sewage are an inspirational grass roots charity, working to educate communities dealing mainly in the effects of single use plastic. I first became a supporter in the 1990's when they were concerned with water pollution along the South West coast, more recently I've become a community leader in their 'Plastic Free Communities' campaign.
Plasticoceans.org produced the documentary film 'A Plastic Ocean' in order to highlight the damaging effects of plastic pollution on our seas. Their research found that micro plastics are present inthe food we eat in ever increasing quanties. Watching the film set me on the path that I now follow, it's well worth a watch.
Having initially supported my plastic-free group from a local high school, the Duck Pond Market have become a huge part of my life. I now not only trade at the market but I also run a local 'Plastic Free Community' group which has close links with this great local institution. Before I even started thinking about setting up a 'Plastic Free' group, the Duck Pond were leading the way with an ispiring sustainability policy, banning needless plastic...Go Duckies!
