Park Cleans - Plastic Free Eastbourne

Last week, two teams from Wightman & Parrish volunteered in-conjunction with Plastic Free Eastbourne and did two Park Cleans, in different areas of Eastbourne.

On Thursday, the team at Princes Park got on with the Park Clean. Luckily for Shane, Debbie, Steve, Emma and Lindsay, the sun came out. The team picked up loads of rubbish - as you can see from the pictures below!




On Friday, our team of Stuart, Isobel, Tom, Klaudia, Jan and Anna cleaned the  Western Lawns park in Eastbourne. As you can see from the pictures, the team got rather soggy, but still managed to collect plenty of litter from the Park.

Plastic Free Eastbourne promote initiatives to improve the way we care for our planet. They believe in taking action with urgency in order to raise public awareness about some of the most pressing issues facing our environment. Their main aim is to make Eastbourne carbon-neutral by 2030. Wightman & Parrish took part in these Park Cleans as part of Plastic Free Eastbourne's Spring Water Festival.

"The Spring Water Festival celebrates our water, our beach and our network of Refill stations, located along some of the 19km of Eastbourne's seafront and coastline. By providing free mains 'spring water' we can raise awareness for everyone to 'refill' reusable water bottles and reduce the amount of single use plastic, to help protect our environment." - Oliver Sterno, Founder & Community Leader, Plastic Free Eastbourne

​Wightman & Parrish are hoping to continue to work with Plastic Free Eastbourne as part of our own sustainability goals, and to provide our customers with the most sustainable Health & Hygiene products available.
