Become a Plastic Free Ally

One of the main objectives of the Royston Environmental Group is to gain the status of “Plastic Free Royston” and we already have eight Plastic Free Champions, small local businesses that have dropped single use plastic from their day to day organisation.

We are actively seeking Plastic Free Community Allies to join our crusade. Local community groups and non-profit organisations to sign up to a similar pledge. There are no costs involved!

About the Group

scorched world

The group’s origins were within the “Naturally Royston” working party of Royston Town Council where the “Plastic Free Royston” initiative had been an embryonic project for two months in early 2020. However, it was subsequently felt that this project and any other environmental issues would be better served by forming a separate community based group.

Our initial project has been to continue the Plastic Free Royston initiative, which is part of a national campaign run by Surfers Against Sewage and which many towns across the UK have taken up, including others close to Royston. This initiative aims to drastically reduce single-use plastics in the town and surrounding areas, in local schools, businesses and other groups. Individual residents will be encouraged to remove at least thee single-use plastic items from their daily activities.

In 2021 the Group launched its new Sustain-Ability initiative which aims to help the people of the Royston area work towards a more sustainable way of living. You can find out more about Sustain-Ability by following the links above.
