CROW is a voluntary not-for-profit community group, founded in 2018 to free where we live from single-use plastic. Crowthorne was certified as a Plastic Free Community, January 2019 by Surfers Against Sewage (SAS). CROW will continue its efforts to build a sustainable and environmentally sensitive community by:
• engaging in issues that preserve and enhance the village’s environment, including energy use, waste and resource-efficiency;
• source reliable information, attract involvement and suggest practical solutions as appropriate;
• combine education and awareness-raising with action and policy influence.
CROW functions within the framework of the Community Plan prepared by Wokingham Without (WWPC) and Crowthorne Parish (CPC) Councils; and is aligned with SAS Plastic Free Communities. As such, CROW will continue to drive local governance, build resistance hubs with local business, work with plastic free allies and run plastic free events.
