What is 'Ditch the Plastic'?

Sussex Chamber To Launch 'Ditch The Plastic' In Collaboration With The Creative Group


The Sussex Chamber of Commerce and The Creative Group (a full-service marketing agency based in Gatwick) are delighted to announce their latest collaboration with their 'Ditch the Plastic' campaign.


The two companies have worked together for many years and have once again come together for a common cause and are leading the way in raising awareness of the catastrophic effects that plastic pollution is having on our environment.


Headed up by CEO of the Chamber, Ana Christie and CEO of The Creative Group, Matt Turner, the two organisations will be organising several beach cleans across the region with the hope to expand to parks and villages in an effort to clean up Sussex's award-winning natural spaces. As part of the initiative, the duo is calling for other organisations to do their bit and to get involved in this important initiative; with the two explaining that they are particularly keen to speak to organisations who are interested in partnering or sponsoring the events.


Ana Christie, Chief Executive of the Sussex Chamber of Commerce, said: "This is a huge issue for the Sussex region and with this campaign we hope to encourage people to cut down on their plastic waste and in doing so clean up Sussex's beaches and reduce the growing tide of plastic, washing up on our beaches every day.

Matt Turner, CEO of The Creative Group, added; "This is an issue that businesses, can no longer ignore. We need other organisations to get involved to help spread the word of this important initiative. Therefore, I urge the businesses across Sussex to help us make a real difference and get in touch to discuss potential partnership and sponsorship opportunities."


However, they haven't stopped there - in an effort to continue the good work, the two organisations have both also committed to reducing their plastic wastage in their office spaces and have already started putting measures in place, to encourage their staff to recycle any rubbish and to limit their use of single-use plastic.
