Councillor Karen Davies launches 10% challenge

2pm on 2nd March at ECO Action Hub

Come and find out more about our ‘10% Challenge’!

As part of ECO Action’s drive to help people to address our climate crisis, RBWM councillor Karen has agreed to launch and take part in ECO Action’s personal 10% (carbon reduction) challenge.

Karen will commit to:
· Measure her initial CO2 or CO2e footprint
· Commit to reducing it by 10% year on year by changes to her lifestyle
· Measure her improvement.

Why? We all realise and experience that the climate is changing. Without us all taking action our young people will experience a very different and challenging life.

This community initiative is to generate enthusiasm throughout RBWM for action, show that our Councillors care and want to make a difference.

We invite you to take our 10% Challenge. 💚

CleanConscience for Christmas!

At the Eco Action Hub we sell products from CleanConscience, and they are the perfect gift for Christmas! We have luxury brands such as the White Company and Elemis!

How are CleanConscience reducing waste?

CleanConscience works alongside hotels and toiletry manufacturers to ensure that the maximum amount of partially used hotel soap and toiletries are recoveredre-purposed and redistributed for the benefit of those most in need of hygiene.

Large re-fill containers are made up of partly used bottles and tubes that are kept separate in batches of the same brand and sorted into type – shampoo, body wash, conditioner and body lotion.

Full or almost full bottles are sanitised by our regular volunteers, ready for placement into CareKit™ toiletry packs.

By buying CleanConscience products from the Hub, you are getting someone a great gift, as well as supporting an amazing initiative!
