Plastic Awareness Day

When is it?

Thursday 31st May 12-4pm

Where is it?

Did you know that eight million tonnes of plastic are dumped into the ocean every year? That’s a whole garbage truck per minute – and 80 per cent of that comes from land-based sources.

At The Red Dragon Centre we recognise the critical environmental challenges that face our planet today and we want to make sure we are making a meaningful difference. Not only are our venues, restaurants and coffee shops taking measures to reduce their carbon footprint, but we are also taking additional steps to encourage youngsters to ‘think green’ through RDC Eco Kids, a series of thrilling learning activities set to run at the Centre throughout the year.

Our first event RDC Eco Kids event will be held on Thursday 31st May in partnership with Eggseeds, Pedal Emporium and Re-create. From upcycling plastic waste, to pedal powered entertainment, we’ll be raising awareness of plastic pollution through drop-in activities at the Centre between 12-4pm. And the timing couldn’t be more perfect with the  Volvo Ocean Race Stopover also sailing into Cardiff Bay between 27th May – 10th June and their campaign pledge to turn the tide on plastics.

To coincide with the launch event, Eggseeds will also be revealing our very first Eco Dragon, made entirely of recycled materials, which will be installed just outside the Centre during May half term. Come along and have a play!

Activities will be free. Usual parking terms apply.
