The Last Straw campaign is asking people to give up plastic straws. The Christmas and New Year campaign aims to reduce the amount of disposable plastic straws used and thrown away. Find out more about the project on our website and see how you can get involved: www.litterfreecoastandsea.co.uk/the-last-straw/ or follow on twitter and Facebook #TheLastStraw.
Litter Free Coast and Sea visited the sewage treatment works run by Wessex Water over in Swanage. This allowed LFCS to see the effects of putting fats, oils and greases down the drain. LFCS will be working with Wessex Water on a new project located in Swanage in the new on this issue.
Litter Free Dorset attended the local Swanage pub watch meeting to discuss the Bin Your Butts campaign, and how pubs in Swanage can help promote the message. Additional portable ashtrays were distributed to the pub landlords, and the HUBBUB Ballot Bin was given to the landlord of the Anchor Inn to trial out to help reduce the number of cigarette butts discarded in Swanage.
A roadside litter campaign is currently being put together, look out for more information in the New Year.
Thank you to all of the volunteers, businesses, partners and organisations who have got involved with Litter Free Coast and Sea over the last year.
