AMAZING! Thank you

A little message containing huge thanks! We are overwhelmed by everyone who has pledged so far and can't thank you enough...hugs all round! 

We have stretched our target as we want to be able to effect positive change in getting businesses across Cornwall to stop using plastic straws. The quicker we can do this, we stop more plastic straws needlessly ending up in our oceans and on our beaches. 

The additional funds we are looking for will enable us to keep and extend the website as a knowledge hub for all the things plastic free in Cornwall

Fancy attending events and seminars about plastic free living and sustainability? Then we would love to oblige if we meet our new stretch target; Final Straw On Tour! We are passionate about starting conversations about conservation so watch this space for a possible conference on plastics if we reach our new target. 

And as Margaret Mead said "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."

We love you for this!

If you can donate £50: Now we don't know what to say. This is getting us close to actually being in a position to do something about the plastic nightmare of straws. This is Changing Stuff On The Ground. This reward is us thinking about you all day in that sort of silent awe and appreciation you hold for someone that just did something utterly brilliant. Just know that. We love you for this.

£100 or more

Speechless Awe and Renewed Fortitude!

If you give us £100 - Actual reverential silence. Those of us who give a hundred quid to a brilliant cause are determined to see it happen. This means we will craft a special pedestal of Appreciation and Fellow/Sister Plastic Warrior in our hearts and glue you onto it. And then we'll look at it in speechless awe and renewed fortitude.

£250 or more

A Song of Thanks!

£250: We have lost all reason & written a song of thanks! We've all learned it off by heart, we sing it (out loud) on the Number 18 from Penzance and that bit of A30 over Bodmin Moor. You have no idea of the place you occupy in our plastic-fighting hearts, because we know without doubt that we have the winds of change with us and we're going to beat this plague of pestilential polymers. So we all get to have a better future. Boom.
