About the Carbon Saving Project

We are working with our local community to reduce food and household waste, help people to develop new skills and lower their carbon footprints and improve the reduce the energy consumption of our own organisation by installing energy efficiency measures to our community owned buildings.


Here’s what we have planned for 2020-2022:


Our Dundee West End Community Fridge helps to reduce food waste by making short-dated, surplus food, from supermarkets and local food businesses, available to the members of the public.

We want to work with more local businesses to stop food going to waste and plan to extend the fridge’s opening hours so that more members of the community can benefit from the food available.


Give Boxes

While the lockdown is in place, we cannot currently accept donations through our Give Boxes. However we are looking for creative ways to help people reuse and recycle at home so keep an eye on our blog for hints and tips!

Carbon Literacy

Our carbon literacy workshops help people to develop new skills and improve their understanding of cliamte change issues.

This year we’ll be taking things digital and running our workshops online so check out our Events page to see what’s coming up.

We plan to further reduce the carbon footrpint of our community owned buildings - St Marks Church and the Greenfield Place community centre - by installing additional wall and floor insulation and expanding our rainwater harvesting system.

Volunteers are vital to the Carbon Saving Project. These community heroes help us to deliver all kinds of activities from teaching sewing skills in our carbon literacy workshops to collecting food for the Community Fridge.

Even during the lockdown there are still plenty of opportunities to volunteer. If you would like to get invovled please get in touch, we would love to hear from you!
