Beth rydym ni'n ei wneud

Penarth achieved plastic free community status in 2019!

In 2022 we began the work to update Penarth’s Plastic Free status and would love everyone to get involved! We signed up to the national Surfers Against Sewage Plastic Free Communities campaign in 2018, and now over 800 communities across the UK are involved.

It’s hard to avoid plastic in our lives, and in some cases it can be useful. The problem is that we use too much plastic without thinking, and we throw too much away. ‘Plastic Free’ is a long term vision, and in Penarth it’s not about removing all plastic from our lives: it’s about taking steps to cut our use of avoidable, single-use plastic, and changing the system that produces it.

If everyone makes small changes, Penarth can make a big impact!

We would love you to help put Plastic Free Penarth on the map, slashing avoidable single use plastic in our town. There are lots of ways to make a difference.
