The Council already have a small number of Plastic Action Champions recruited and trained up but they are looking for more and would like as wide a geographical spread of Champions around the district as possible - click for more details. Training sessions for new champions are to be arranged on an ongoing basis as additional Champions step forward.
Plastic pollution is a hot topic currently with public levels of awareness of the issues boosted by coverage in programmes such as Blue Planet 2. That heightened level of awareness has led to the East Suffolk Greenprint Forum identifying the need to respond by letting the community know what actions they are able to take to do their bit to help by minimising consumption of avoidable single-use plastics, by identifying passionate individuals or groups in the community who are already doing their best in their own lives and crucially want to help others do the same, and developing and supporting a network of “Plastic Action Champions” to motivate and encourage positive change in their communities. Daniel Wareing at East Suffolk Council is coordinating this network on behalf of the Greenprint Forum, along with Jason Alexander of Rubbish Walks fame.
