CAG Devon Plastics Collaborate meeting – tackling single-use plastics in a post-pandemic world

Tuesday, 20 July @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

As part of #PlasticFreeJuly, and as CAG Devon groups start to plan events again, it seems timely to offer a Collaborate event. We’re inviting people concerned about plastic waste in their communities to come together again, virtually at least.

‘When Dawlish Against Plastic (DAP) was first formed in March 2018, we decided that the Plastic Free Communities award offered by Surfers Against Sewage was sufficiently structured to show progress towards reducing single-use plastic in Dawlish. The pandemic has made the task more difficult but this goal remains achievable. The journey continues……..’

We’re delighted to have Vanessa and Dave from DAP with us, to share some insights and top tips around their work in gaining their “Plastic Free Communities” award. This is something several CAG Devon groups have achieved, and several more are working towards it.

Vanessa and Dave are also keen to explore the challenges of tackling plastic waste in a post-pandemic world, where the last 18 months has created a massive increase in single-use plastics, and reversed some of those hard-won behaviour changes which had contributed to reductions in single-use plastics.

Do join us as we discuss the challenges, but also share positive actions and inspiration. If you are concerned about litter, especially plastic litter, in your community, this will be 90 minutes well spent!

It will be online, not just because we have all become adept at Zoom meetings, but also considering the size of Devon, it makes sense to do some things virtually.

We look forward to seeing you there.
