Parklea Association Branching Out Ltd

Parklea Branching Out Growing Together is a carbon saving project funded by the Climate Challenge Fund. We aim to reduce the collective carbon footprint of Parklea and the wider Port Glasgow community through recycling, reducing waste and the re-use and upcycling of materials and textiles. Through our growing together workshops we will share what we learn through our activities to benefit our wider community, particularly hard to reach groups, with the aim to reduce local carbon emissions but also to change behaviours and attitudes towards waste and climate change. The workshops will encourage participants to make low carbon food choices, raise awareness of the best ways to avoid food waste, reduce household waste and encourage more re-use and recycling.
