Green Routine 2013: take part in a free, exciting campaign on waste action in your community

Green Routine 2013 is a year-long campaign to help people in your area minimise waste, save money and have fun developing positive habits with long-term benefits.

Dozens of groups, from parish councils to Transition Towns, Women's Institutes to garden clubs and active living centres, have already got involved in ways that will both benefit the people they help and encourage greater community participation.

Backed by Somerset Waste Partnership, Green Routine 2013 is a flexible campaign, supported by free tools to make it really easy to add your community group's local voice. Working together we can help more people reduce waste and save money.

Green Routine 2013 is simple to explain and easy to join. With small steps we can all take to make better use of the things we have, from food to furniture, gardens to gadgets, and share tips to make things last longer or giving them a new home.

Check this link for the 12 monthly themes with many activities to help us all – young or old, able or disabled, well off or not – cut waste by avoidance, reuse and repair.

Your group can easily make Green Routine its own. You choose which themes, activities and campaign tools are right for your group, and then have a fun campaign to engage your members or the wider community.

And FREE training can help you pass on important advice and information, such as:

Love Food Hate Waste can help families waste less and save up to £50 a month. (Join a session at Williton, Taunton or Yeovil in January; further sessions are planned in Sedgmoor and Mendip area. Register online or phone Beth Prince on 01823 625716).  

Compost champions – everything you wanted to know about how to get great compost. (Contact Rupert.farthing@carymoor.org.uk or phone 01963 350143)

You can be a Green Routine partner for a single month's theme, several or the whole year, and you can help your members and others tackle one or more projects or simply spread the vital messages of the campaign.

It is easy for groups and individuals to get involved and share experiences, lessons learnt and top tips to help others on their Green Routine journey.

For information or to register your group's interest in becoming a Green Routine partner, sign up online or contact Beth Prince at Somerset Waste Partnership
