Totland Parish Council are pleased to present our first Plastic Awareness Family Fun Day. We have teamed up with campaigning group Plastic Aware to organise a day in which people can get advice about how they can make changes to their own plastic use in order to ‘do their bit’ towards combating the serious issue of excessive plastic consumption.
The other part of the day will be a series of fun activities for children to reinforce the message, all on an anti plastic theme. There will be a pebble hunt on Totland Beach – with a prize draw. Local mosaic artist Helen Goodman will be creating, with children, a pop up beach mosaic. The Art Ecology team will be there with fun activities for children on a beach wildlife theme. Bird Aware Solent have devised some fun activities for children including decorating a clay seagull with beach ‘finds’ plus games and information about how birds are affected by plastic pollution.
Local beach side restaurants and cafes are all behind our initiative and have all pledged to stop using plastic straws with several already committed to excluding other types of plastics – for example, takeaway containers, stirrers and takeaway coffee cups.
We hope to see loads of people on the day in the beautiful setting of Totland Bay, where families can additionally enjoy a lunch or snacks in our wonderful beach side eateries.
