Wales’ first plastic-free village
Located on the west coast of Wales, the village of Aberporth aims to become the first single-use plastic free place in Wales. Local resident and filmmaker Gail Tudor started the campaign after a fact-finding tour of the British coastline to see the impact discarded plastic was having on marine life and the shore.
Aberporth’s pub has switched from plastic to paper straws and avoids condiment sachets, while milk is sold in glass bottles. The village has also banned plastic cutlery. A series of fundraising activities sustained a poster campaign aimed at raising awareness among villagers and visitors.
