The MML Green Team needs you!

Green and Gold

We are looking for new committee members to join the Green Team 2016-17!

The team meets four or five times over the course of the year, and each committee member takes on as much or as little additional work as they wish to do. More importantly, it is very rewarding to see change happening and to know that one is doing one’s bit - however minimal - towards a more sustainable future. 

The team is also considering a different approach to the Challenge next year. There is now a high level of compliance in this building with the everyday business of saving energy and not wasting resources. We think that we need to keep our standards in the building up to scratch but also challenge ourselves by branching out into something different. Maybe a bio-diversity project? Or something involving engagement with the local community? A really big waste and recycling project, incorporating food waste management, VegWare cups and plates, locally-sourced produce? Do you have any ideas?

If you are interested in being part of the committee, or have an idea for MML's next Green project, Nan Taplin will be delighted to hear from you!
