Want to live life greener? Then don’t miss out on a free event that celebrates sustainable living!

The Greener Living Fair, organised by Wyre Forest District Council, springs into life on Saturday 5 October 2019 at Kidderminster Town Hall from 10.30am to 2.30pm.

A wide range of organisations will be on hand to provide useful information and advice on all things green.  Find out about foraging, cutting out single use plastics, electric bikes, beekeeping, saving water and energy and lots more.

This year’s event is kindly sponsored by local company ALS UK who will be showcasing their new ‘reverse vending’ plastic bottle recycling machine. Event-goers are welcome to bring in a plastic bottle to try this out.

There will also be an opportunity to bring along broken, damaged or torn items for free advice by the volunteers at The Repair Cafe. Delicious plant-based food will be brought to you by the Vegan Caterers and free Fairtrade tea, coffee and hot chocolate will also be available.

There will be activities for children too, including recycled arts and crafts, henna tattoos and face painting. Wolverley Animal Centre will be bringing a selection of giant sized insects and snails for children to view or handle.

Councillor Nicky Martin, Cabinet Member for Housing, Health, Wellbeing and Democratic Services said: “Every year the Greener Living Fair attracts more and more people. It’s great to see the local community taking a keen interest in the environment and engaging with organisations that support and enable a greener more sustainable world. We look forward to seeing you in October.”

Councillor for Blakebrook and Habberley South, Vicky Caulfield said: “It’s brilliant to see so many different organisations demonstrating their passion for eco-friendly living.

“Becoming sustainable has never been more relevant, so please come along to our fair to see the many ways in which we can all go ‘greener’!”
