Plastic Free Narberth Launched 7th May 2018
After an initial welcome we listened to the children of Narberth Youth Theatre perform a series of poems about the threat of plastic, ending with a song. This was followed by a film which traces the journey of Cal Major as she paddles her board around the Isle of Skye, there is beautiful scenery but also even on the most remote beaches plenty of plastic too. Finally Cris Tomos, PCC's lead for the environment talked about the councils plans to improve recycling rates with a new collection system. It was very good to here the PCC showing such an interest in the environment and this bodes well for working on projects like PFN in future.
This was followed by a chance to chat while eating wonderful soup and bread.
21 signed up most were keen to take part in litter picks and to join a steering group who we hope will devise a programme of events to involve everyone in our efforts to reduce our use of single use plastics, reusing it where we can and recycling it so that it does not end up in landfill polluting our rivers and seas.
