Plastic Free Medway

Towards Plastic-Free Medway

Towards Plastic-Free Medway is a community group of local residents working with local businesses and organisations to switch from single-use plastics to reusable and recyclable alternatives. We do this by providing information and education to individuals and businesses through outreach and social media, and working with other community groups who are working towards reducing plastic in the local area. Towards Plastic-Free Medway is working towards Surfers Against Sewage accreditation with the aim of gaining Plastic Free Community status for Medway.

How to get involved

The group meets every third Sunday at the Quakers Meeting House, 3 Northgate, Rochester ME1 1LS, UK every third Sunday of the Month from 1800-2000. The dates for 2019 are 15th September, 20th October, 17th November and 15th December.
