Plastic Free FelixstowePlastic-Free Felixstowe is a community group set up in February 2018 with the aim of reducing the use of plastics in our town.

They aim to educate and encourage everyone in Felixstowe to do their bit in their own lives to reduce the plastic epidemic. Beyond the changes we can all make in our own lives, they will be talking to all the shops and businesses in Felixstowe to encourage good practices.

We cannot overnight eliminate all plastic, but we can reduce our use of it
significantly, such as:

- Jute/cloth shopping bags rather than plastic.
- Re-usable hard plastic or metal water bottles.
- Bio-degradable straws.
- Water fountains to refill water bottles.
- Fewer ready-meals (plastic container, plastic film).
- All take-away coffee cups to be bio-degradable.
- Stop plastic cutlery.
