Beach Cleans this weekend!


We're delighted at how much support our plastic free ethos is getting throughout our amazing town and community. This Saturday is our next #RhylBeachClean meeting at Crazy Golf, West Parade for a 10am start, supported by G2G and their plastic recycling project. Then on Sunday, it's over to the Kite Surf Cafe again for a 10am start, in conjunction with the Rhyl branch of Wilko. Usual rules, terms and conditions apply but mostly, all welcome, including well behaved dogs on leads, well behaved children (not on leads, but supervised by a responsible adult please!). There will be a safety briefing at the start and a sign-in sheet too. The weather forecast is for sunny spells but with a breeze, so it may be a tad chilly. 
We hope to see you there

PlasticFreeRhyl at Sound Radio Wales

I was delighted to be invited this morning to chat with Craig K at Sound Radio Wales about #PlasticFreeRhyl and our plans for Refill in Rhyl

"Refill in Rhyl" information event, Thursday 28 Feb, 1pm to 3pm, Kite Surf Cafe


Hi! You know that we here at Surfers Against Sewage in Rhyl (SASIR) are big on beach cleans. You may also know that we are leading the campaign to make Rhyl a #PlasticFreeCommunity with our work in schools and with businesses and community groups, supported by Rhyl Town Council. We want to encourage us all to use less single-use plastics and thereby cut down on plastic pollution at source.

What you won’t know yet is that we hope to launch “Refill in Rhyl” (RiR) any day now.

“Refill” is an award-winning, grass roots campaign which aims to make it easier to reuse and refill your bottle with free tap water, rather than buy a new one. Their mission is to stop millions of plastic bottles at source each year by breaking the current social norm that we need to buy bottled water when ‘drinking on the go’ and making it both normal and easier to be able to carry a re-usable bottle around and to fill it for free.

The Refill in Rhyl scheme is already underway (Kite Surf Café, Crazy Golf on West Parade, Premier Inn and Cookhouse, Costa, and the Sussex) but we are hoping to make a bigger impact by actively encouraging and supporting pubs, hotels, cafes and other businesses or offices to become a Refill in Rhyl station.



If you’d like to help out with promoting the scheme, or have a place that could become a RiR station, pop into the Kite Café on the prom (between the Theatre and the Lifeboat Station, just behind the Travelodge) tomorrow, Thursday 28th Feb, between 1pm and 3pm to chat to us and find out more.

Hope to see you there! Keep it #PlasticFree!

The battle against single-use plastic continues

We are in danger of having our hard-fought campaign to pressure the London Government into adopting a plastic bottle deposit return scheme disrupted.
