Falmouth and Penryn achieved plastic free coastline status by the volunteer and charity organisation Surfers against Sewage this month marking the third community in Cornwall to be awarded with this position.
Members of the Marine and Natural History Photography course at Falmouth University collaborated with Surfers against Sewage to organise a beach clean on Gyllyngvase beach where they were also fundraising for a trip to the Galapagos Islands.
Here they plan to continue their work and help the Galapagos Islands to achieve their aim of becoming the first ever plastic free nation.
I headed over to Gylly beach to see what they thought of Falmouth and Penryn’s recent achievement and to find out more about their upcoming trip.
