Boston Spa, Wetherby & Villages Green Group

The Boston Spa, Wetherby & Villages Green Group was set up with three objectives:

  1. To reduce our carbon emissions
  2. To increase biodiversity
  3. To reduce waste and increase recycling in our communities

Our aim is to help the environment in our local area, but hopefully other areas can benefit from some of our ideas.

We have so far set up 5 community action groups to focus on specific areas, namely:

  • Protecting and increasing Tree Cover
  • Making Cycling safer
  • Reducing Waste and increasing Recycling
  • Creating Wildlife Corridors
  • Reducing Food Waste

See tabs above for each group’s pages and blogs/news.

We also have two developing projects:

  • Creating a clean river environment
  • A community repair shop / café

Every week in Boston Spa, Wetherby and Villages, we are getting new members joining us who would like to get involved in some aspect of protecting our local environment, reducing our carbon waste, increasing biodiversity or reducing waste. We are now up to 155 members and growing!

Next Group Meeting

If you share our desire to improve our local environment and do what we can personally and as a community to reduce our carbon footprint, please come along to our next open meeting, which are held bi-monthly in Boston Spa Methodist Church.

The next meeting is on Wednesday 6 October 2021 at 7.30pm.

Can you pledge?

Did you know 75% of a household carbon footprint is from the energy we use, the food we eat (& waste), how we travel and what we use in our day to day lives. Here are our ideas on 2 easy changes you can make to help reduce your carbon footprint:

  • Can you minimise your use of single use plastics – try 3 ways of being consistently aware of reducing this type of waste, eg:
    • take your plastic boxes to the butchers, so don’t use plastic
    • try a new product at a refill shop ie shampoo bars
    • stop using cling film
    • say no to polystyrene, plastic straws and stirrers
  • Can you use peat free compost – read more here
    • take a look at the packaging and understand if it really is peat free
    • try and find out what bedding plants have been grown in if you are purchasing
