  1. Greta that there are groups like Transitional Town Guildford and Hills Sustainability Group who keep the issues of our deteriorating environment before the community and show by example what we can done locally to tackle the problems such as showing how can be plastic pollution can be reduced. Look forward to catching up with the result of the plastic free month on 16th July

  2. Thanks John!
    BTW, the wrap up event will be on the 31st of July, not the 16th. Hope to see you there šŸ™‚
