Penzance’s Plastic Free Champion Awards are back

Never mind the BAFTAs, the hottest awards night is right here in Penzance. It’s been five years since our last Plastic Free Penzance awards. Five years! A lot happened in that time – including a host of amazing work in the town to reduce single use plastic at source. Our local businesses are at the forefront of that and it’s time to celebrate them again.

Celebrating our business champions 

The Plastic Free Champion Awards are our way of recognising the businesses in Penzance who actively contribute to the fight against single-use plastic. It’s a night to honour and celebrate those who have embraced their sustainability journey and made a significant impact in reducing single use plastic. We also have some special awards to honour those businesses that have gone above and beyond to put people, place and planet first, leading the change to a sustainable Penzance. 

New Sustainable PZ Business Hub Launch 

As part of the event, we are thrilled to be launching the Sustainable PZ Business Hub. Co-created by local businesses as part of Sustainable PZ’s ‘Together for our Planet’ initiative, the hub will support and empower businesses in Penzance to continue their plastic-free journey, and adopt more sustainable practices across other areas. By joining forces, we aim to create a greener and more resilient future for our town. Businesses can sign up on the night, giving them access to a host of free resources, workshops and networking to help them on their journey.  

Eat, drink and dance 

The awards presentation will start at 7pm to 9pm. There will be food from Whole Again Communities plus a bar for drinks and refreshments thanks to The Exchange team. From from 9pm Groovelounge take to the decks, with dancing til late.
