Stone Rangers WI (Leytonstone) marked The Big Green Week in various ways throughout September.
Climate ambassadors Jill Hasler and Jane Ramsell worked together to produce a special edition Green Newsletter – providing simple ideas which members could action locally on an individual basis to reduce, reuse and recycle.
We asked members to consider the MFWI survey points – electric car charging points and tree planting – which led to a lively discussion in our September meeting which we will follow up on with our local councillor.
The month’s efforts culminated in a ‘Pick up Plastic’ walk on the last Saturday of The Big Green Week. 12 members and friends collected 4 huge bags of rubbish and recycling in an hour of pleasant camaraderie on Wanstead Flats. One passer-by commented, “how very community spirited of you, thank you very much.” We considered this a job well done and a month well spent!
