Turn Lyme Green promotes sustainable living in Lyme Regis.  Set up in 2007, we engage the community in environmental issues.  We meet regularly, plan campaigns and events, and have fun. Collaboration with other environmental groups in West Dorset and beyond is an important part of keeping everyone informed and up to date.  TLG acts local, thinks global.

More Lyme Regis businesses are joining the Re-Fill scheme which has received so much national publicity recently.  Refill is a free tap water initiative designed to reduce plastic pollution and promote healthy hydration by making refilling a water bottle easy, social and rewarding!  Hats off to the 23 businesses taking part in Lyme Regis and nearby.. as others join we will let you know.    If anyone wishes to join, just contact Litter Free Coast and Sea who co-ordinate locations in Dorset.. and let us know too so we can add your name to our list.  There is also an app  created by City to Sea which can show ReFill locations near where you are.  Nationally there are over 23,000 members.

SUCCESS! In June 2018 Lyme Regis gained title, Plastic Free Lyme Regis, from the Plastic Free Communities initiative of Surfers Against Sewage. Lyme Regis is the first town in Dorset – and 24th in the country – to receive this accolade. Local businesses, organisations and residents are all taking steps to reduce single-use plastics.

In 2019 our work in the community was recognised and we were shortlisted for the Plastic Free Communities Award from among several hundred applicants.  We may not have won but were proud to fly the flag for Lyme Regis in the final!
