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.

MARCH  Tuesday 10th.   Going Green is Good for Business

Listen to local businesses describe practical steps they have taken to make their businesses more sustainable, to replace single use plastics and to curb use of energy.  The SAS (Surfers Against Sewage) award and our own Supporters Scheme will be described.  And a representative from Litter Free Coast and Sea will outline their latest campaigns and awards for businesses.  All good for marketing and promoting eco business practices.  Discussion and debate are welcome and a chance to network to share best practice.

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 20 businesses taking part in Lyme Regis .. 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.  There is also an app which can show ReFill locations near where you are.

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!
