Turn Lyme Green (TLG) is a local group that promotes sustainable living in Lyme Regis who engage the community in environmental issues.  As plastic pollution of the seas became a recognised issue TLG decided to take action to do something positive about turning the tide of single use plastic in Lyme Regis. TLG created the Plastic Free Lyme Regis project as an ongoing initiative to improve the environment and increase understanding of the issues around disposable materials.

Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) is a national marine conservation and campaigning charity that inspires, unites and empowers communities to take action to protect oceans, beaches, waves and wildlife.

The 5 steps necessary to achieve ‘Plastic Free’ status includes: support from the local Town Council, businesses working to reduce the amount of plastic that they use, the community supporting plastic free living and initiatives such as beach cleans to reduce waste in the environment.

Lyme Regis Town Council actively supports the Plastic Free Lyme Regis initiative. Councillor Richard Doney, a member of the Plastic Free Lyme Regis Steering Group said “I strongly believe that achieving accredited plastic free status will be immensely beneficial for the town and further enhance our reputation as one of the country's leading resorts."
