Rhyl – A Better Life Project

Rhyl - A Better LifeOur project is supported by the Wales Council for Voluntary Action; Welsh Government and Gwynt y Môr Community fund.

Our goal is to reduce the amount of plastic being sent to landfill within the Rhyl and local district. We are working with schools, communities and businesses to collect discarded materials and provide a variety of educational ways that they can be re-used and recycled to reduce our waste sent to landfill.

We are working with Christchurch CP School, Ysgol Llywelyn, Bryn Tirion Hall School, Surfers Against Sewage, Rhyl Botanical Gardens who are collecting plastic and have created a mini-recycling unit – thank you for taking part in the project and helping to reduce waste. We are using discarded plastics for sustainable hydroponics and shredding the plastics into flakes which will be re-used to make new practical plastic products. We are developing innovations and solutions to help turn discarded plastic into a precious resource!

G2G Hydroponics with sustainable 3D printing and precious plastics.

G2G HydroponicsWe are working with schools and communities to re-use discarded plastics, biodegradable 3D printed parts, and other materials freely available to set-up Hydroponic systems to let you grow your own plants.

Using Hydroponics allows you to grow all year round, it conserves water and plant nutrients are controlled, it’s a great space saver for growing lots of plants, they grow quicker and in higher yields all year round and there is no need for weeding.

We are producing a range of learning resources to go with the sustainable Hydroponic systems, how to build them using sustainable materials, best practices and much more, which will be available for free on our e-learning platform later this year.

Communities coming together to pick-up litter and precious plastics.

More than 110 volunteers have been hard at work over Easter keeping Rhyl’s waterfront clean. Working with G2G Communities on Saturday, April 13, 56 volunteers cleared more than 100 cans and plastic bottles – which have now been recycled – as part of 80kgs worth of waste from around Crazy Golf on the West Parade.
