“Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy. You vote in elections infrequently, but when you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in.”

Yes, that’s quite a lot of people. Anyone is free to like posts by other members, but what we really want is members to get active. That’s how we make a difference.

What Can I Do?

Well, you can pick litter, reduce your consumption of plastic packaging and help out at beach cleans and much more. Take a look at the Plastic Free Hartlepool Facebook group and see how else you could contribute and get involved. We consist of people of all ages and walks of life united by our concern for our man-made and natural environments.
