HRH Prince of Wales opens Damers School

Plastic Free Movement

In 2018 the independent butcher shop the Brace of Butchers opened an extension called Naked Brace. The plastic free shop invites customers to bring their own containers and buy fresh market vegetables, grocery staples, local honey and milk supplied by local farmers.

The latest scheme is boomerang bags, where the community is invited to make the bags and continually reuse. Damers First School’s Eco Crew have been helping the community to start a Refill Poundbury scheme alongside Litter Free Dorset, which allows people to fill up water bottles in a number of businesses around Poundbury, reducing plastic waste.

The eco-campaigners have also led a movement to inspire Dorchester to become Plastic Free after making passionate requests to councillors, businesses and the wider community.
