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.



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 out of over 300 applying – to receive this accolade.   Local businesses, organisations and residents are all taking steps to reduce single-use plastics.   For more information, visit our new web site for Plastic Free Lyme Regis:
