Surfers Against Sewage: Plastic Free Communities Toolkit
Plastic pollution in our oceans is the ‘new sewage’. Blighting our beaches and strangling our seashores it reaches every part of our oceans. It is one of the biggest global environmental threats of our age and fighting it together is our priority issue.
To combat plastic pollution, we will:
Stop the problem at source
Clean up pollution from our beaches
Plastic Free Communities is a movement to engage and connect individuals, communities and businesses in the collective effort to reduce the flow of single-use plastics into the marine environment.”

Setting Up a Zero Waste Shop
We certainly had no interest or desire to franchise or open further stores ourselves, we are just a family of 3 and already have our hands pretty full as it is! So knowing we inspired so many other people to open one themselves was a great feeling. The challenge then was to figure out how we can be of help to so many people, because answering the emails was also taking up much of our time and energy. This is when the idea for this PDF was born.
We have created a document that we hope will act as an informational guide and assist you in making the decision to open up a shop of your own. It is broken down into what we think are the ‘Top 10 Steps’ to take into consideration as you plan your shop. We have chosen to make this document available for FREE, making it accessible to as many people as possible. So please, download it, pass it onto your friends, neighbours, local shop owners and lets make shopping zero waste a reality!”
