Fight to cut plastic use and waste through family roadshow event
An environmental group will be hosting a family-friendly event to help fight litter in Swaffham.
Pure Clean Earth, supported by Breckland Council, will be meeting at the Buttercross on Thursday, April 11.
Running from 10am to 11.30am, the Trash Tribe Invasion event forms part of a series of clean-ups taking place throughout the district during the Easter period.
Volunteers will not only help clean the town, but will also learn how to reduce their environmental footprint and plastic waste.
As part of the Trash Tribe roadshow, children under the age of 14 are encouraged to enter a poster campaign to help raise awareness of litter.
“Tackling plastic waste in our environment is a global issue, however we need to act locally to ensure we play our part in the reduction of plastic use and waste,” a spokesman for Breckland said.
“We want to see our rivers, local countryside and market town environments free from polluting plastics and litter, and are therefore inviting residents to get involved to work together and to tackle the issue.”
The event is open to all ages, although children need to be accompanied by an adult.
A free Pure Clean Earth t-shirt will be distributed to the first 20 residents who register for the event.
The Trash Tribe events are supported by a £9.75m government fund.
