12 January 2018: Lady Scarlett’s Tea Parlour on Ventnor seafront has pledged to go plastic-free. The cafe is one of a number of island businesses looking to reduce unnecessary waste and plastic pollution. Is yours among them?
Single use plastics such as straws blight the island particularly in the summer season. One of our team picked up over a hundred straws in just a few walks along Shanklin beach at the end of last summer so we are looking forward to more seafront businesses taking steps to reduce the amount of single use plastics they hand out.
