This group is part of the national initiative, organised by the campaign group Surfers Against Sewage, and follows on from the initiation of Plastic Free Uttoxeter. The group have already received the backing of key businesses and groups, including Morrisons, Central England Co-Operative, Trent & Dove, Burton ReRun and the Co-Operative Learning Trust.
