Change for Chesham is back and bigger than ever! This year will focus on helping households in Chesham reduce food waste, save money on energy bills, learn about composting and recycling, make sustainable travel choices and encourage participation in health walks.
The campaign will run during Spring and Summer with a series of activities, workshops and events across Chesham. Buckinghamshire County Council’s Sustainability Service will be coordinating the campaign, which will include Master Composters, Food Champions (Love Food Hate Waste), Community Energy Champions, Travel Choice and Simply Walk.
The aims of the campaign are to help people to make small changes that will help them save money and start the journey to a more sustainable lifestyle. By having a range of sustainability actions in our programme, the aim is to engage and encourage people to choose the right actions for their circumstances, to save money and make simple changes to lifestyles that will have positive benefits to themselves and their communities.
Look out for the Change for Chesham logo for information events and activities happening across Chesham this spring/summer, and start your journey to a more sustainable lifestyle, saving money and improving your health as you go!
We will be appearing at local events in Chesham with advice and competitions for prizes to help you start your journey to a sustainable lifestyle.
Use the hashtag #ChangeForChesham on Twitter to take part in the discussion and make your pledges for the change you plan to make.
Local businesses in Chesham are supporting the campaign, look out for the logo displayed in shop windows on Chesham High Street – there will be products, services and advice inside to support you with making a change. Some of our latest supporters are:
Healthright - The shops sells refillable household cleaning products and offers customers a recycling service for glass packaging bought from the shop. Visit them to find out what else they offer.
Cancer Research UK Shop - Both ‘donating to’ and ‘purchasing from’ charity shops makes a big difference, save your stuff from going to landfill and breathe new life in to pre-loved items.
