Plans for zero plastic on North Devon’s stunning beaches

North Devon District Council are considering banning polystyrene bodyboards from being sold in local shops. The council has recognised the negative impact on the natural environment that types of cheap, polystyrene bodyboards can have, including a danger to wildlife and the ocean.

The council recognises the plastic polystyrene bodyboards are popular because they’re so cheap, but because of this they’ve become almost a single use, disposable item, with many people just leaving these often broken boards, on the beach. Instead, the council is endorsing the rental of bodyboards and has committed to writing to all national supermarkets within the region to request they remove the sale of the cheap polystyrene bodyboards.
