“ It’s always been part of who we are anyway, I haven’t had to change mind-set. The only thing to think about is at what point do we implement things in the business.  But tourism has to be sustainable, there is no other way forward. I can’t think we’d go back to doing it any other way now.

“It’s so important. Plastic Free has become part of Penzance’s identity and it’s a brilliant thing, on so many levels. It’s something that Penzance can run with. It’s always been a little bit different as a place, and I think it’s just going to keep growing. We’ve moved back after being away for 30+ years and it’s great to see how much the community has got on board. Penzance is leading the way and it’s important to support that and be part of it.”
