About Us

How Plymouth is working together to tackle the issue of single use plastics and plastic pollution.

Who we are

The Plymouth Plastic Free Directory is part of the Plymouth Plan for Plastics – the initiative that drives the Plastic Free Plymouth mission.

The Plan for Plastics is one of Plymouth City Council’s pledges. Alongside the Plan for Plastics, the Council, has been trailing a number of plastic interventions across the city. Working together with local partners within the city to reduce plastic pollution. The Plan was initally launched on Friday 8 June 2018, and since then has been updated and re-launched on Tuesday 14 July 2020.

The delivery of the Plan for Plastics is driven, monitored and supported by the Britain’s Ocean City: Plastics Task Force, with representatives from the public, private, voluntary and academic sectors.
