Plastic Free Wimborne

Plastic Free Wimborne - Surfers Against Sewage

What do we mean by Plastic Free?

The banner 'Plastic Free' can be puzzling, even misleading, how can we ever be Plastic Free?

The concept of the Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) Plastic Free communities campaign centres on SINGLE USE plastic such as bottles, bags, coffee cups and straws.

Zero Carbon Dorset

Dorset 2030 is a comprehensive report setting out this vision. Compiled by a team of volunteers, with input from the general public, academics and sustainability professionals it highlights more than 120 case studies of positive steps already taking place by councils, businesses, schools, universities, colleges, and most importantly community groups across the county.

Minster Environment Group

Our aim is to improve and reduce the church’s environmental impact. We recognise that the world is changing fast and it is important to support action to reduce global warming and maintain biodiversity.

We care because it is God’s creation, not ours, and as a church we are committed to safeguard the integrity of creation and to sustaining the life of our planet.

The Minster has twice held Eco-Congregation Awards and since 2017 holds the Eco Church Silver award, which assesses all aspects of church life and management.
