It seems a daunting, if not impossible task to make Swansea plastic free, but all over the world, here in the UK and Wales there are examples of individuals, people coming together in groups, to change their ways and campaign for plastic-free living in their local towns and communities. This is the start of the journey in Swansea.
Plastic has become an integral part of our daily lives, often without us realising! It is cheap and versatile and so has many uses, but single-use plastic in particular has become such a huge environmental issue. Over the past few months awareness has been raised in the media of the scale of the problem and so, many individuals are starting to take action where they can.
On this website you'll find information on what's being done locally to achieve the ultimate aim of making Swansea plastic free. There's information on lots of things but the three main strands are Shop, Campaign and Get Involved.
