As a group we are keen to encourage as much recycling as possible based on the Reduce, Reuse, Recycle mantra. We run regular freecycle days and often lobby for better recycling collections.
Don’t despair – repair!
Have you ever wanted to repair something but not known how to do it?
This not only preserves scarce resources it also uses much less energy then creating things from the raw materials. Here is a summary of what can currently be recycled in the area.
Wedmore Plastic Bag Free – Freecycle/Campaign
In 2008, we are ran a campaign to make Wedmore a plastic bag free village.
Members of Green Wedmore visited shops in Wedmore to find out if local traders would be willing to stop giving out free plastic shopping bags. The response was very positive and we made a lot of progress in making Wedmore plastic bag free. The group are encouraging local shoppers to remember to take a bag when they shop in Wedmore.
