Rethink, reuse, repair & recycle for positive change

We are a friendly group of volunteers who believe that we can create positive changes through what we buy and how we use resources. We want to support our community to reduce its impact on the planet. We collect plastics for recycling at the local Farmers’ Market, have set up the monthly repair café, the community fridge, the climate cafe and more.

Do come along and see us at one of these events if you’d like to find out more. You can find all of the dates and venue info on our Events Page.  Or send us an email lifestyle@greeningsteyning.org

If we don’t recycle our plastics, they will be burnt as refuse derived fuel. And if everyone recycled everything they could in their blue bin, West Sussex County Council would have over £2 million extra to spend on services.
