Sponsored by Litter Free

Dorset magazine is excited to launch this new award together with Litter Free Coast & Sea and Litter Free Dorset. For this award we are looking for a local Food or Drink related business, who go the extra mile for the environment. Because of the sponsors, this year’s eco award is focusing on things businesses are doing to reduce plastic and single use item consumption, litter prevention and things businesses are doing to help prevent bathing water pollution.  Perhaps they go above and beyond to encourage customers to reduce or recycle their waste; for example by stopping the use of straws or offering incentives to customers to have their takeaway coffee served in their own reusable cup. Perhaps they run clean up events or perhaps they have recently installed a fat trap. Is the business involved in any local community environmental projects or any other inspiring initiatives? It is these businesses that we want to hear about.
