CPPC Logo Competition
Friday, 31st July 2020

Help Unite Marine Organisations in Cornwall with a new Logo!

Closing Date: 31st July 2020


The  CPPC is a network of over 50 marine conservation, environmental groups, & science experts in Cornwall leading the way in tackling ocean plastics. Although each individual organisation involved in CPPC has its own logo and branding, it is important for the CPPC itself to have a unique identity. As such this July we are launching a Design Our Logo competition with our followers to find the right image for what we represent.

The successful logo will be used in all future PR, documentation, clothing and branding, representing the CPPC work on a regional and national scale. It is an amazing opportunity for a new budding graphic designer to add to their portfolio, whilst also helping a brilliant and powerful movement to continue their invaluable work protecting our coasts and seas against the issue of plastic pollution.

For more information about CPPC please see their website https://cppccornwall.org.uk/

To enter your logo, or to discuss the process and get full logo guidelines please contact Abby.crosby@cornwallwildlifetrust.org.uk

I write in the light of recent events relating to the spread of Corona virus and actions that must now be taken. I can advise that the Community Partnership Officers have been in discussion with senior managers this morning to determine the way forward in respect of volunteering operations across Cormac’s business.

Fishermen's Kisses
21st January 2020

Cornish Plastic Pollution Coalition (CPPC) have just launched a short competition film, Fishermen's Kisses.

You can watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kwa5Jyra7Fc.

This is a film aimed at fishermen, looking for their input for designs to help reduce one of the most pervasive forms of marine litter washing up on our beaches - the small offcuts of net (called fishermen's kisses) that can easily be lost, blown or washed over the side of boats or from harboursides while mending nets. They seem like such a small and insignificant thing, and yet - as most of you will know only too well - have built up to become one of the commonest items of waste found on shorelines all around the South West coast.
