What's happening in Fleet Hampshire

Help Fleet become Single Use Plastic Free

Fleet BID is working in partnership with Hart District Council as part of their 12-month pilot initiative with Sky Ocean Rescue to make Hart single use plastic (SUP) free.

Find out about Hart District Council’s workshop on Eliminating Single Plastics in your business on 5th March 2020 here.

Fleet BID will be working closely with Kate from zero waste retailer, Scoop, to help businesses in Fleet Hampshire to make simple changes towards becoming single use plastic free.

As part of this project, businesses are encouraged to commit to Surfers Against Sewage and make three changes in their business to become a Plastic Free Champion.

This is part of Hart District Council’s broader initiative working closely with council operational staff, local businesses and schools with the objective of educating how our lives can impact on ocean health and supporting Hart residents in reducing and disposing of SUPs. Hart District Council are working closely with local community as well as Fleet BID and other business groups to reduce the use of SUP products in Hart.

The initiative is aimed at reducing the significant threat to wildlife and the environment caused by using disposable SUPs and is the first joint initiative of its kind. It is intended that the work at Hart could form the basis of an initiative that could then be rolled out to other local authorities.

Sky Ocean Rescue launched on 24 January 2017 and aims to shine a spotlight on the issues affecting ocean health. Its aim is to find innovative solutions to the problem of ocean plastics and inspire people to make small everyday changes that collectively make a huge difference.
