PROJECTS: 2021/22

Peat Free Planting This year we committed to 100 % peat free planting in our town planters. We bought our organic compost in bulk and combined this with using bulk bought mulch and homemade seaweed fertilizer to cut down our carbon footprint and reduce our use of plastic

Leave No Trace Our volunteers attended training courses on the principles of Leave No Trace - encouraging a local walking group - Carnegie Walkers - to adopt these on their local walks. We have installed LnT signs in our Marina and on our walking trails.

Lovely to see all the June planting taking off around the town - thanks again to Falvey's Nurseries, Skelligs Nurseries, Kieran and his crew and KCC for sponsorship 💚

Producers and supermarkets are largely contributing to the plastic crisis we are facing today. As consumers, we can drive change but our individual voices are louder and stronger when we come together. Sick of Plastic want to support people in connecting with others in their local area to drive change on a bigger scale. In addition to putting pressure on Supermarkets to act on plastic, Sick of Plastic has been pressuring government to place legislation for tackling plastic. The Waste Reduction Bill demands the following; 1. Introduce a deposit return scheme for plastic bottles and aluminium cans 2. Tax single use coffee cups and promote reuse 3. Ireland to comply with EU ban on single use plastics
