Plastics are a scourge on our environment and they last a really long time. If Henry VIII had drunk from a plastic water bottle and thrown it on the ground, it would STILL BE HERE. We have taken disposable to a level which the world cannot deal with. Time to change. See the Four Rs heading for ideas on how to reduce plastic and other waste.

What is Transition all about?
Transition Towns have started up projects in areas of food, transport, energy, education, housing, waste, arts etc. as small-scale local responses to the global challenges of climate change, economic hardship and shrinking supplies of cheap energy. Together, these small-scale responses make up something much bigger, and help show the way forward for governments, business and the rest of us.
Whether we like it or not, over the next decade or two, we'll be transitioning to a lower energy future - essential because of climate change and inevitable because of diminishing supplies of cheap fossil fuels.
There are a variety of possible outcomes depending on whether we stick our heads in the sand or whether we start working for a future that we want.
Transition Initiatives are actively and cooperatively creating happier, fairer and stronger communities, places that work for the people living in them and are far better suited to dealing with the shocks that'll accompany our economic and energy challenges and a climate in chaos.
Join us and help achieve these objectives !

This quick Footprint Calculator helps you to estimate the climate impact of your own life. It is divided into various categories: transport; energy; food; waste; house building; other goods and services; and public services. At the end you'll be able to see how well you are doing, and be pointed towards ways you can try and improve this.
It's quick and easy to fill in - you don't need access to precise information. It may not quite fit your lifestyle so be creative and make guesses - but do be honest with yourself! Click the image left to find your footprint.
Mission Statement - to make Kidderminster a better-fed, better-exercised, better place to live!
