Transition Tywi Trawsnewid has in 2019 shown the Sky News film ‘A Plastic Voyage‘ about plastics contaminating the waters around Great Britain and Ireland. Sue Weaver, one of the founders of Transition Tywi,  was on the eXXpedition voyage and on hand in the ballroom of the Castle Hotel, Llandovery, to talk to the audience and answer questions.

Sue previously saled across the Atlantic with eXXpedition, to research plastics trash, which is seriously damaging ocean and coastal environments, and marine life.

In Carmarthenshire, the county council’s company Cwm Environmental has a good record in handling waste and recycling, Unfortunately. people living in the upper Tywi Valley no longer have a recycling centre to use, as the excellent Llangadog centre was closed in 2017.
