There has recently been growing awareness of the movement towards 'zero waste' and the ideas of Refusing, Reducing, Reusing and Recycling. Transition Town Milton Keynes have put together some ideas about how we can all work towards a zero waste lifestyle. Check out our webpage which includes local examples, and a link to explain what happens to our waste after it enters our bins. We'd love to hear from you if you have any ideas of how we can reduce our use of single-use plastic.
Taking place on the starting day of the Milton Keynes Festival Of Nature put on by The Parks Trust, we bring this unofficial event as a fringe event. Nature and our environment are important! #MKFoN
As people of Milton Keynes celebrate the nature we have, we must also look at how we project our environment and do our bit to brace ourselves and Community for the climate choas we are now experiencing globally. This is the follow up to the packed meeting that took place on the 30th March. Since then MK Council has made a number of statements regarding it's commitment to tackling climate change. However, words alone won't create the change needed across MK and beyond. This meeting is an opportunity for concerned citizens to reconvene, share knowledge and ideas and continue to build the movement for change. For more info and to book your space visit eventbrite.
