Welcome to the website of the Plastic Free Bookham project, run by environmental group Transition Bookham. We aim to reduce single-use plastic in our community and gain the Plastic Free Communities accreditation awarded by Surfers Against Sewage.
We launched the project in 2019. You can view the slides from the presentation here.
The next two years were challenging times in which to progress a plastics-reduction project, but we've been making steady progress on some of our objectives and have achieved three out of five. As at October 2023 the project is just over 80% complete. We have 18 out of our required 20 Community Allies signed up and have our first Business Champion approved. See individual pages for details.

We're very grateful to have received a grant from The National Lottery Community Fund, distributed by Transition Together. The grant covers our running expenses for 2023 and we thank National Lottery players for making this possible.
