The Isle of Wedmore Green Group (WGG) is an umbrella organisation to co-ordinate, explore and encourage sustainable living as it could apply in practical terms to Wedmore and the surrounding villages.
With man-made climate change now a virtual certainty as well as the un-sustainable extraction of raw materials and water this community has three broad choices,
- Rely on central and local government to legislate mankind and this planet out of trouble
- Ignore all the scientists and evidence and continue to overuse energy, refuse to recycle, fly at a whim to the closest destinations and eat strawberries from Egypt in January.
- Work together as a community to find ways to reduce our environmental impact.
We like option three; if you’d like to find out more have a look around our website.
