We hear a great deal about the actions we can take as individuals and the changes required from government and big business - both vital if we are going to combat the climate emergency. We also have vital roles to play as local communities, both to make our communities better and to contribute to wider change.

Manningtree in Essex recently earned 'Plastic Free Town' accreditation from Surfers Against Sewage. This was down to community effort and instigated by Bekki Bibko. As a founder member of Manningtrees community activism group PACE, Bekki co-ordinated the effort required to gain the accreditation, earning herself the Community Engagement Award from Manningtree Town Council.

A teacher and special needs advisor, Bekki wants to see grassroots community groups being established everywhere to make change at a local level, which will drive change at the national and even international level.

Could your town be a 'Plastic Free Town'? Listen to Bekki's story to find out how to make it happen!
