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.
Current projects include: Tackling water pollution in our River Lim and Lyme Bay. Promoting plastic free initiatives through Plastic Free Lyme Regis. Encouraging businesses to become Plastic Free Champions. Promoting a culture of refuse, reduce, reuse, recycle. Sewing and distributing boomerang bags to local shops and businesses. Promoting seed sharing, including growing sunflowers at the local library. Supporting energy saving initiatives and annual Open Green Homes events. Hosting talks and film series, eg. Food and Farming, Seeds and Soil Health.

In June 2018 Lyme Regis gained the 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. Now in our fourth year, we continue to work with our local council and businesses, organisations and residents, taking steps to reduce single-use plastics.
Many Lyme Regis businesses have joined the Refill scheme. “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! There is also an app created by City to Sea which can show ReFill locations near where you are. There are over 20 in Lyme Regis. Nationally there are over 23,000 members.
The Town Council has put in two Refill points on the front, by the Amusement Arcade and one by Boylos in the Shelters.
If any business wishes to join Refill UK follow the link. They co-ordinate locations and let us know too so we can add your name to our list.
