Plastic free Swansea
Let's get plastic out of Swansea and lead the way for the rest of Wales to reduce its carbon footprint. No one wants to see plastic waste wash up on our beaches, break down and enter the food chain. Much plastic packaging is unnecessary, and many non-recyclable plastics can be replaced with biodegradable alternatives; why are we bothering with all these plastic cartons and plastic film?! We're on the way with the plastic bag charge, and there's a clear call from people for big companies to use biodegradable materials. Imagine if all public and big private companies acted at the same time!

Spring Beach Clean
With spring about to flourish ahead of us, let's work together to get the local beaches clean and free of litter.  With enough turnout, let's lobby council support!  If you like this idea, please think about whether you'd enjoy being a team leader and take responsibility for a specific beach?  Bring a celebratory picnic for when we finish, and remember to leave nothing on the beach but footprints!

Improving well-being of older people by merging nurseries with care homes
This doesn't have to be at a care home for older people... it could be vice-versa with older people coming to nurseries, or held at a community centre with parents/guardians/family members providing supervision.

Trees and wildflowers on our doorstep
The wildflower planting around Swansea's roadsides has been popular. Let's do more! We need to encourage pollinators as much as possible, and they benefit people's health and wellbeing too. In addition to more wildflowers, how about tree planting along our city's streets? Many streets have the space but feature nothing but concrete. Improve mental and physical health, encourage people to spend time outdoors with their neighbours, the quality of the air we breathe... maybe increase the value of people's homes!
