BEACH GUARDIAN PARTNERS WITH EARTH FRIENDLY FOODWARE
Earth Friendly Foodware (EFF), suppliers of food packaging made from plants, are pleased to announce a partnership with Beach Guardian Community Interest Company (BGCIC). The partnership will see Beach Guardian promote the full range of EFF products including Vegware catering disposables, Ridan Composters, catering packs and paper straws to businesses and schools in Cornwall.
Beach Guardian is a project based around the beaches of Padstow and St Merryn, in Cornwall. As well as organising community beach cleans and educational events to raise awareness of the impact of plastic on beaches and the sea, it is leading the efforts for Padstow and St Merryn to become recognised by Surfers Against Sewage as Plastic Free communities.
EFF will provide Beach Guardian with direct support for their campaign to help businesses switch from single use plastic products to compostable alternatives as well as promoting better ways to dispose of waste and avoid landfill. EFF will be donating a percentage of revenues generated from businesses in the areas of Padstow and St. Merryn to help fund the activities of Beach Guardian.
“We are delighted to welcome Beach Guardian into this partnership,” stated Andrew Cross, Director, Earth Friendly Foodware. “Their work compliments our mission to remove single use plastic from use in food and drink retailers across the South West. Their commitment to educating their community on the dangers we face with single use plastic and their practical work with beach cleans align perfectly with our core beliefs.”
“We are excited to be working with Earth Friendly Foodware”, commented Rob Stevenson, Beach Guardian.“ Our objective to reduce the use of single use plastic in businesses and schools is complimented perfectly by the products they supply and the support they provide.”
The Beach Guardian Project is based around the beaches of Padstow and St Merryn, in Cornwall. Their aims include increasing the number of regular beach cleans in the area, hosting educational events to discuss the impact of plastic on the environment, encourage local business to adopt the “Final Straw Cornwall” and Refill Cornwall” initiatives and work towards the Surfers Against Sewage “Plastic Free” award for Padstow and St. Merryn. Rob Stevenson and his daughter Emily are Surfers Against Sewage Community Leaders and co-founders of Beach Guardian CIC.
