Share Impact & Travel Without Plastic, have been commissioned by Snowdonia National Park Authority to conduct a scoping study to explore the possibility of creating a Plastic Free Mountain Status for Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon) and the surrounding Snowdonia National Park. Since 2014, the Snowdon Partnership has been collaborating to create and implement an ambitious plan for the future of Yr Wyddfa and the surrounding area. This plan breaks new ground for special places like Yr Wyddfa, by drawing together the various organisations and individuals responsible for managing the mountain at grassroots level.The partnership has tasked Share Impact & Travel Without Plastic with exploring:

  • If a Plastic Free Mountain Status is possible and what this might look like (this would be the first of its kind in Europe)
  • And within this to explore options to
  1. reduce the amount of litter – particularly single use plastics left in the area
  2. reduce the plastic and micro-plastic pollution in the region
  3. influence behavioural change regarding plastic pollution towards this precious region

As part of this scoping study Share Impact & Travel Without Plastic are asking individuals and organisations living in, working in and visiting the area to contribute their thoughts and perspectives via this short survey.They are most interested in responses from:

  • People living within Snowdonia National Park
  • Organisations operating or people working within Snowdonia National Park
  • Businesses operating within the Snowdonia National Park
  • Visitors to Snowdon or the surrounding area
