Sustainable Crediton Newsletter Issue 89

Happy New Year 2018 to all Sustainable Crediton Supporters!

David Attenborough's Blue Planet 2 TV series during December has done a fantastic job of raising environmental awareness particularly of plastic pollution. Attached is a link explaining how small changes you can make will make a huge difference to our environment. There are dozens of things you can do!

You might also like to consider getting more involved in our activities. This month our Woodland Group, Waste Action Group and Pig Club all have meetings. I promise you that you will get a warm welcome if you did want to come along. Just contact the relevant group co-ordinator, details are on the website in the calendar section for each meeting/event.

In February we will have our annual Seed Share. Look out for details in next month's newsletter.
