Plastic-free Penzance: The UK's most eco-friendly town?

Penzance became the first town in Britain to receive “plastic free” status for its crackdown on single-use plastic.

Fishermen collect litter at sea, schoolchildren march about climate change, and organic vegetables are grown to feed the homeless.

Video Journalist: Patrick Clahane.

This video is part of a special series from Penzance. BBC News is exploring the challenges and the opportunities for communities in Coastal Britain.
