Part of the Surfers Against Sewage’s campaign to reduce single use plastics.
Made up of councillors, local businesses and community organisations, the Climate Emergency Steering Group was formed in 2022 to follow guidelines from the environmental campaign body Surfers Against Sewage.
Its Plastic Free Communities network has been created to tackle plastic pollution at source – from beaches and green spaces back to the brands and businesses that create it. It aims to kick people’s ‘addiction’ to throwaway plastic and change the system that produces it.
In order to achieve the accolade Wellington had to get a motion passed by the local council, organise two events, get 12 businesses to eliminate at least three single use plastic items and involve 30 ‘community allies’ to reduce or eliminate various items of single-use plastic – this covered schools, churches, community spaces and volunteer groups.
