Educational resources

"In times of drastic change it is the learners who inherit the future"

At The Fold we believe in lifelong learning and seek educational resources to keep ourselves and our community best informed on how we can best serve the environment for a more sustainable future. We encourage you to take a look at some of the videos and websites we have collected to share with you here:

Single Use Plastic

Refill

 A grass-roots charity started to encourage the move away from single-use plastic and towards re-useable waterbottles. The charity works with both businesses to become ‘Refill Stations’ (The Fold is one!) and created a mobile app for the public to use to locate their nearest refill station when out and about to prevent them buying a drink in a disposable bottle. The website has lots of advise on how to cut down your own single-use plastic consumption, as well as how to continue to reduce single-use plastic in a coronavirus world.

Surfers Against Sewage

From humble beginnings in Porthtowan Village Hall in 1990 the charity is now one of the UK’s most active and successful environmental charities. Dedicated to the protection of oceans, waves, beaches and wildlife. They fight long and hard to protect what we all love and won’t stop until it’s completely clean, safe and protected for everyone, forever.
