Mold Plastic Reduction has been awarded Plastic Free Communities status by anti-plastic standard-setters Surfers Against Sewage (SAS).
SAS officially recognises organisations that make specific efforts to declare their community as working toward freedom from single-use plastic. SAS reckons that enough businesses, schools and community organisations in Mold have made the plastic-free pledge that they can give us – and the town – their approval.
Thirty years ago, Surfers Against Sewage started out – as their name implies – campaigning to keep our seas and rivers free of particular types of pollution, but they have grown to become key plastic-awareness campaigners.
The Plastic Free Communities initiative now unites nearly 700 towns and cities across the UK. Given that there are just a handful in Wales, Mold’s achievement is even more significant.
