  • Weymouth fish and chip shop bans plastic knives and forks.
  • Fish 'n' Fritz in Market Street is now giving away wooden cutlery.
  • The award winning shop has also swapped from plastic to paper straws.

A Weymouth fish and chip shop is doing its bit to 'tackle' plastic pollution in our seas.

Fish n Fritz in Market Street have stopped giving away plastic knives and forks.

They've replaced them with wooden ones sourced from sustainable forests.

The award-winning chippy has also swapped its plastic straws for paper ones.

Owner Paul Hay is making sure the business is doing everything possible to make the business as green as it can possibly be.

Paul said: ""Where we can, we are switching over to more environmentally and sustainable products. I am constantly looking out for new ways we can help improve the environment. The way I look at this issue is, if we can all do a little the world can change a lot."

It's not the only initiative which Fish 'n' Fritz have embraced, their 'Suspended Coffee Scheme' has been a huge hit with customers and made a massive difference in the community, supplying hundreds of hot drinks and meals to homeless people.
