Plymouth City Council – Preventing Plastic Pollution

Plymouth’s marine environment is a key part of what makes Plymouth unique and special. Over the next three years, the Preventing Plastic Pollution and LIFE Recreation ReMEDIES projects both aim to engage residents, schools, visitors and marine experts in ways to improve the health, condition and species diversity within Plymouth Sound and Tamar Estuaries.

Working alongside Britain’s Ocean City’s Plastic Taskforce, Preventing Plastic Pollution will implement a programme of engagement activities to:

• Remove plastic pollution from source to sea, reducing the impact on our marine environment.

• Trial new plastic recycling bins in the water and on the land.

• Work with businesses, leisure and recreation sectors, schools and communities to raise awareness about single use plastics, and to find joined up ways to reduce our plastic footprint.
