We want people to come along to June’s business meeting where we will be discussing how we can make this happen.
What – Waste discussion
When – 8pm on Thursday June 26
Where – upstairs at RISC
Composting is important because every year the
UK throws away
7.2 million tonnes of food and drink from our homes. The waste food is
estimated to cost £5 billion a year and wastes resources, harms the environment
and costs the country £23 billion a year.
If we can turn food waste from a problem (land fill) into a commodity (compost) there are many benefits.
If you have ideas or questions, are interested in local food production or saving waste you are welcome to come along.
The discussion will take place after the Green Party business meeting at 8pm on Thursday June 26 upstairs in RISC.
If you don’t know about community composting the link below contains a lot of interesting information.
