Good Roots Barn, was born one day after spending many hours trawling the internet trying to purchase bird food that did not come in plastic! I have been practising a plastic free lifestyle for many years now and it seemed only natural to convey this into the place I love most, my garden. So the adventure begins! It is my aim to offer alternatives to plastic in an industry dominated by it, but also to educate via our blog and social media. So let’s provide some demand within the industry for plastic free gardening supplies, as the consumer you hold all the power to encourage change, happy shopping.

Our vision is of a world where creative energy drives environmental change

Our mission is to provide a tool for local recycling and creative engagement to empower the community to live sustainably.

This excellent idea comes from Precious Plastic, a global community, who in the true spirit of social enterprise, put their idea out there for us all to use. You can view all the designs, products and community here:  . Basically, it involves recycling plastic by shredding it, heating it and remoulding it into new useful/artistic creations. The plans for building the machines are open source and they are simple and quite cheap to build. We plan to use this to recycle plastic which is otherwise difficult to recycle and reduce transport and other associated costs by recycling locally. We think of this as a fun project to bring the community together, engage with recycling and plastic waste issues and get creative. Even better, this process can create high quality plastic products which can be sold.

Plastic Free North Devon is a local environmental charity started by volunteers who want to reduce the impact of plastic pollution on the environment in North Devon and beyond. Our mission is to protect and improve our environment through community-led action to combat plastic pollution. 


Our mission is to protect and improve our environment through community-led action to combat plastic pollution.

We aim to achieve this by helping people to recognise the relevance and value of the environment to their lives; to see and experience first-hand the impact of plastic pollution on nature; and to support good choices in purchasing, use and disposal of plastics, as we move to a more sustainable community.

By working with local communities, businesses, organisations and government we aim to:

  • Raise awareness of our environment and how it is affected by plastic.
  • Reduce the consumption of single-use plastics in North Devon.
  • Clear waste plastic from our coasts, waterways, countryside and urban areas.
  • Recycle and dispose of used plastics in an appropriate way.

Plastic Free Exmouth is an active group working with Exmouth Council, businesses, schools, and individuals to gain certification for a Plastic Free Community with Surfers Against Sewage.

Exmouth has two Community Leaders for Surfers Against Sewages "Plastic Free Coastlines" movement, Scott and Alison and as you know, plastics are becoming more and more prominent in our environment and the aim of this group is to reduce that within our community with a goal of leading Exmouth towards certification as a Plastic Free Community.

In order to do so we need to achieve five simple objectives:

1) Get Exmouth's local Council to support Plastic Free Coastlines

2) Get as many local Businesses as possible to remove three single-use plastics from their outlets and for this to be an ongoing change

3) Get the Local Community (you) to support Plastic Free Coastlines and achieve set targets - we'll be looking for volunteers in the coming months!

4) Run two local community events over the course of a year - watch this space!

5) Have a group of local stakeholders/steering committee meet once a year to discuss the progress made by Plastic Free Exmouth. BUT We aim to make this once every couple of months!

It is not a lot!! and with the help of you and your family and friends, we have the chance to be one of the few Devon coastal communities that are certified Plastic Free Communities.

Over Summer 2019 we will be forming a Steering Group and signing up Volunteers for a programme of changes and events early 2020 onwards!

A community page to provide support, updates and information for Ashburton becoming a plastic-free town

This is the campaign page for Plastic Free Totnes, a community driven movement aimed at reducing use of unnecessary single use plastics (SUPs) across the town. The campaign formed out of the TTT Waste Into Resources group that met monthly from December 2016 to discuss local sustainable waste solutions . The group decided that the plastic issue alone demanded full attention as a global environmental catastrophe happening before our very eyes.. We are signed up to the 'Plastic Free Communities' campaign led by Surfers Against Sewage which sets out 5 smart objectives for the town to meet. We have so far run two roadshows in the town ‘Plastic Surgeries’ and have signed up numerous business to the Refill campaign (look out for the water refill stations). We want to work with local businesses and the whole community to find alternatives, sharing information and encourage action to reduce SUPS' and address devastating plastic pollution.
