ECO-group Turn Lyme Green will be hosting three events this month, starting with its monthly meeting tonight (Tuesday, May 8) with a question and answer session on all things recycling.
Paul Burridge of the Dorset Waste Partnership will lead the session and all are welcome to bring as many questions and packaging that you can to learn the truth about what you can do to help.
The meeting will be held at the Driftwood Café in Lyme Regis Baptist Church, 7.15pm for 7.30pm.
So many packages are recyclable but some are not, and this is not always indicated on the packet. So many normal crisp packets are not recyclable. Where do these packets end up? Inevitably in landfill sites across the county and beyond. Could this be a reason for opting for a different snack instead?
Of course, we do have a choice, but it is so important to actually be aware of what the long term impacts of our current behaviour are likely to have on the planet in years to come.
Anning Road Fete – Sunday, May 13
Come and join in our mini beach foray and see what treats, surprises and pitfalls are hidden in the sand!
‘A Plastic Ocean’ – Friday, May 25
Back by popular demand! A repeat screening of this brilliant film to be held at the Baptist Church Hall, 6.45 for 7pm. This stunning and memorable film has won many awards and highlights the realities of plastic pollution, particularly poignant as we are a seaside town. Entry is Free; donations welcome.
Help us all to play a part in looking after our precious earth. It is all we, and our children, will ever have, and we hope you love it as much as we all do!
