Let's make Kew even greener!

Most independent traders in Kew have said goodbye to plastic bags - but there is more we can do!

I think that ZWIN, the Zero Waste Initiative for Local Business, could help:

"ZWIN aims to help organisations in the borough of Richmond to develop sound environmental policies in order to reduce energy and water consumption, reduce waste production, encourage recycling and the efficient use of resources. This is achieved through free environmental assessments, which are carried out on-site by trained volunteers. Where ZWIN's recommendations are put into practice, organisationss can benefit from reduced operating costs and improved environmental performance."

  1. Yes this is a good one, and also I think we need to do a plastic bag check in the autumn and maybe try to get more shops on board. We could work out how many bags have been reduced by the campaign if we check that local shops are sticking to the changes, and find out what consumption levels are and have been.
