They are a few of the 37 individuals from 24 different eco-congregations who took part in the Zero Waste workshops, organised by Eco-congregation Scotland, in Edinburgh and Glasgow at the end of November. The day flew by, with a 2-hour session in the morning called Love Food Hate Waste, followed after lunch by a 2 hour session on Love Your Clothes. Together we learned about the contribution that food waste and the clothing industry make to climate change, and some practical steps that we can all take to reduce our environmental impact. Great fun, but deadly serious too. The idea was that those who came along and took part can go back to their churches or networks or groups of friends and run their own informal activities and information events based on what they learned and the materials they have access to.
Wish you have been there? Don't worry!
You have several options.
- Maybe someone from your church or area was at one of the workshops? If so, ask them if they will run a local mini-workshop to share what they found out!
- If not, we are planning to repeat these "cascade" workshop events:
(a) in Stirling on Saturday 2nd February
(b) in Cupar on Tuesday 5th February
(c) in Inverness on Friday 8th February.
Detailed information and booking forms will be out shortly, Hope to see you there!
