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 plan to further reduce the carbon footprint of our community buildings by installing additional wall and floor insulation and expanding our rainwater harvesting system.

Our Community Wardrobe has the aim of encouraging more people to REUSE, REPAIR & SHARE. 'Fast Fashion' is one of the number one problems driving the climate & ecological crisis and we can all do our bit to cut down.
