ElthamEnviros and members are active in several areas:
Supporting local campaigns: Better Streets Greenwich, the Carbon Zero Greenwich group, The Greenwich Sustainability Hub, Extinction Rebellion Greenwich and the Stop Silvertown Coalition.
Working with Deansfield primary school’s Eco-Council to tackle single use plastics, run used school uniform sales, and fundraise for a composter to help reduce and reuse food waste, whilst educating our children about the natural world around them.
Taking action locally together. We have formed 4 working groups in the following areas:
Air quality and active travel. Following our successful online petition to the Council to set up safe cycle routes in Eltham during COVID-19, the council won TfL funding and designing a safe route linking Eltham to Blackheath and Greenwich. They hope to win more funding in future to cover its construction.
Litter and recycling. We have an active petition asking the Council to improve waste management in the Borough. Please sign and share here
Nature and biodiversity. Please sign and share this petition led by Wildlife Greenwich to fund a much-needed ecology officer in the Borough.
Working with local businesses to improve eco-practice.
Please email us if you'd like to join one of these groups and hear more about our activities: firstname.lastname@example.org
During COVID times we have also been running information sessions on topics of interest and meetings on Zoom. Past sessions have included Green Finance and Fast Fashion. Please let us know if you have knowledge or skills you'd like to share with us, as well as ideas for other sessions and workshops!
Finally, WE NEED YOU! If you can help us with our social media please get in touch - every little helps and we're far from experts in this field!
