Thanks to David Attenborough’s Blue Planet documentary the past few years have been a turning point in highlighting the dangers of excess plastic on our planet
In 2018 we started our Skip the Plastic campaign which aims to encourage all of our guests to:
Wherever you see our Skip the Plastic logo you will see a commitment to reducing our plastic consumption.
COVID-19 aside, we have been virtually plastic-free at Cohort since 2019.
We were the founding members of the St Ives Plastic free Steering Group and in conjunction with several other businesses in St Ives we set up the Plastic Free St Ives Campaign: This campaign is part of the wider Surfers Against Sewage Plastic Free Communities initiative which encourages towns and cities across the UK to take positive action to eliminate single- use plastic.
We built a steering group of local stakeholders to drive this campaign; created awareness, educated and worked with the community to reduce plastic consumption.
We earned St Ives Plastic Free accreditation in 2020 and Cohort itself is a plastic free champion.
