Plastic Free Hartlepool is a community group founded in 2018 which has recently been awarded Plastic Free Community Status from marine conservation charity Surfers Against Sewage. To help achieve this status Plastic Free Hartlepool worked with the business community which resulted in 37 local businesses removing at least 3 pieces of single use plastic from their business.
