Wherever we go, and whatever we do, we have an impact. Let's make sure it’s a positive one. Do it #thekernowway.
Clean Cornwall is asking Cornish residents, visitors and business owners to consider how we can all minimise our impact as we step into one of the busiest summers we've ever had.
So whether you are a local, or here on holiday..
we all have a shared responsibility to look after this special place.
We call it the Kernow Way.
The Kernow Way means...
Cornwall welcomes the refill movement so don't be afraid to ask our amazing cafes to stock up your lunch boxes, coffee cups and water bottles. You can download the official ReFILL app to help you or check out our brand new Plastic Free Shopping directory.
If prosecuted for failing to pick up after your pooch you could face a fine of up to £1000. So let's work together to combat the dog poo problem. Once and for all.
See here for guidance on wild camping legally and safely.
Animals need space to breed, feed, recover and thrive so let's give them that.
The Cornwall Marine and Coastal Code will show you how to have amazing and positive encounters with wildlife.
So it's time to ride the wave of change. Buy good quality boards that will last, or even better, a wooden one! Or try renting from the many surf shops you find in Cornwall.

AND GOING SLOW...
In Cornwall we say 'Doing it dreckly'.
We are renowned for going at a much slower pace, and it might take us a while to get round to things.
But really, 'Doing it dreckly' means much more than that.
It means live and enjoy the moment.
Go slow and soak up everything that is special about this place.
We are so lucky to be here.
Love where you live.
Love where you are.
Do it #thekernowway.
