Campaigning to reduce litter and improve water quality in Dorset


Sustainable Business Award

Transforming the plastic footprint of Dorset based business, retail, leisure and tourism.

What’s it all about?

We’re so lucky here in Dorset, and it’s almost perfect… but like many other places water pollution and littering, in particular plastics, is a problem! That’s why we are inviting Dorset based businesses to consider ways to become more sustainable and further limit their impact on the environment especially rivers, lakes, seas, quays, harbours and beaches. To help develop, to support and to recognise actions taken by local business, we are creating a new Sustainable Business Network funded by the EU INTERREG Preventing Plastic Pollution project! 

It’s easy to join the ‘Sustainable Business Network’, all you need to do is complete the survey. We need to know who you are, where you are and what stage you are at in your sustainability mission. The survey only takes about 10 minutes to complete and is a fantastic opportunity to join a network of likeminded business owners working towards a more sustainable future.

By completing our initial survey, you will take the first step towards:

  • Growing your business network
  • Achieving a ‘Sustainable Business Award’
  • Meeting likeminded business owners
  • Becoming a more sustainable business

Sustainable Business Network

Through the network, local businesses will be invited to events hosted by environmental experts and will meet other businesses taking similar steps to becoming more sustainable. Businesses who sign up to the network will be supported by Litter Free Dorset and together businesses can work to achieve a ‘Sustainable Business Award’ to proudly show the local community they are making a difference.
