Zero Waste Stores - Plastic Free Coastlines

18 May 2018

TBI Director Vanessa Halhead has discovered some interesting videos about Zero Waste Stores (and various other topics), and wonders whether the idea offers any scope for a TBI project.

At the Transition Scotland gathering in Dunbar last weekend Martin Sherring came across a campaign started by 'Surfers against Sewage' in Cornwall, seeking support from community leaders to  "come forward and unite communities to create Plastic Free Coastlines".  Something here for the Black Isle, perhaps?

And here's a link to a detailed European report on plastic packaging and food waste.

There is considerable interest within TBI at the moment in the growing campaign against plastic pollution and in waste reduction and recycling generally.  If you have any ideas about how TBI might become involved in reducing waste and pollution and encouraging recycling, please let us know by emailing


We are part of the rapidly expanding worldwide Transition Towns movement. The Black Isle is a peninsula of about 100 sq miles ENE of Inverness in Scotland, UK.
