Plastic Free Deal

What you see when you are out for a stroll! When the sun shines it almost feels like a natural instinct to walk along the seafront and we are blessed with so many beautiful beaches in Kent. One of our team members was in Deal over the weekend and came across the hedge of plastic collected from the Deal coastline……….. ‘Plastic Free Deal’ is a new movement that has launched where they are holding a #BigSpringBeachClean on 14th April. They are joining organisations around the country and in Kent with groups in Ramsgate, Margate, Whitstable and Faversham with the aim to gain a 'Plastic Free' status and are successfully making an initial impact on the Kent seafronts. The aim is for all businesses, local authorities, community groups and individuals in the town to stop using at least three pieces of single use plastics and keep the momentum going to reduce their use of plastic. As we all become more aware and communities are beginning to engage together in the removal of single use plastics, we have found that there are so many exciting options that Switch can help business with to innovate their packaging solutions. As a team we are passionate about plastic removal and we have had the pleasure of working with some of the Produced in Kent members to support them on their journey to eradicate plastic from their ranges or to guide them through their packaging journey with an environmentally friendly approach. We have an open-door policy and you are always welcome to pop in and see us ‘Switchers’ if you have a packaging problem you wish to solve or need some free friendly advice, we are happy to help.
