Environment Matters

We are a new Group asking 'how can we change to benefit the Environment?' We are concerned with many aspects, including electric cars, heating systems, travel, food choices, new housing, clothing, cosmetics and our carbon footprint. We aim to take each subject in turn, inform ourselves of the facts and, in the future arrange some study days.

This group is now active and meets on the 3rd Tuesday of the month at 2pm. At the moment we meet in members' homes, but if the numbers increase, we will have to look for a more suitable venue.

At the January meeting we heard interesting presentations on food, clothing, recycling and the science of global warming. At the next meeting the presentations will be plastics, housing and transport. The aim is to put together a study day. Several of the group members will be going to hear Mike Berners-Lee who will be giving a talk entitled There is no Planet B on 7th February at the Coro.

Contact Jean A for more information.

Tip of the month: Empty toothpaste tubes and toothbrushes can be left at Booth’s in Ulverston for recycling and, if you are there on the first Monday of the month, you could also visit the Repairs Café at 6.30pm in the café area.
