The Cornish Plastic Pollution Coalition comprises over 50 environmental organisations, local marine conservation groups, beach cleaning groups and marine science experts, collectively representing tens of thousands of people in Cornwall and beyond.

The main areas of work of the CPPC are:

  1. to raise awareness of the issue of marine litter and plastic pollution around our coastline by working with community groups, interested schools, and other organisations who wish to engage with the CPPC;
  2. to informally improve information exchange and coordination between organisations and volunteers involved in marine litter and plastic pollution in Cornwall;
  3. to specifically highlight the issue of balloon debris in Cornwall;
  4. to raise the issue of marine litter and plastic pollution with identified businesses and organisations and try to persuade them to change their practices to more environmentally friendly methods / products.

Meetings take place bi-annually at Cornwall Wildlife Trust HQ and are well attended; being an opportunity to share information, resources and updates from across Cornwall and beyond. 

Delia Webb and Claire Wallerstein are currently the Co-ordinators and key contacts for the CPPC: [email protected]
