This group is for individuals, organisations and businesses across the Stroud district who wish to take part in projects that help eliminate unnecessary single-use plastic.

We help event organisers, shops and market stall holders, cafes, restaurants, pubs, clubs, schools, offices and homes to free themselves from reliance on throw-away plastic such as packaging, bags and bottles. We organise litter picks, talks and workshops and work closely with other local environmental groups and civic institutions.

We are currently working towards becoming a Plastic Free Community, an accreditation by the marine conservation charity, Surfers Against Sewage. We also run the Refill Stroud scheme where participating shops and cafes etc offer free tap water refills by displaying the blue #RefillStroud sticker. We helped to persuade the Town Council to install a drinking water fountain in Stroud town centre.

Anyone interested in joining us or in suggesting a project or campaign is warmly invited to our regular meetings held every last Saturday of the month at 1pm (at Atelier Stroud, 1st Floor 19A Lower Street).
