Less plastic in Mold

Over the last year there has been a huge effort by many fabulous people in Mold to get behind the Mold Plastic Reduction campaign, and to reduce their use of unnecessary single use plastic.

Setting new targets for 2020+

Some targets set at Mold Plastic Reduction public meetings (held since May 2019) have now been met. We looked at those achievements during the public meeting in March, and discussed the way forward for 2020 and beyond. People heard from Hannah Blythyn AM and David Warren, Head of Circular Economy Policy Development at the Welsh Government, about the Welsh Government consultation ‘Beyond Recycling’; information about how to take part in the consultation was also shared.

What are we about?

Mold Plastic Reduction group is working to help individuals, businesses and organisations reduce their use of single use plastic.

What are we doing?

Along with over 600 communities in the UK, we are striving to achieve Plastic Free Community status, which is a scheme run by Surfers Against Sewage. To meet the criteria we’re working with Mold businesses, community groups and Mold Town Council to eliminate single use plastic.

How can you help?

We’d love to hear from you! You can get involved by sending your ideas by email to or via our social media channels: Facebook , Twitter and Instagram.
