E for Good

In 2011, I set up E For Good, with Melinda Watson .We’re campaigning to reduce the amount of electrical waste (e-waste) as well as setting up systems to increase repair, reuse and efficient recycling. This is the focus of my work in 2012.

British Gas – Generation Green
 In 2009 I started working with British Gas on their Generation Green initiative – encouraging greener schools.   Under the banner ‘Our Planet, Our Say’, I helped them select the greenest school children from all over the country.   We’ve taken them to see a number of green projects, the first being a plastics recycling plant in Dagenham and the second the Meteorological Office in Exeter.  The idea is to encourage them to come up with some policy recommendations for government, which we’re going to take to Downing Street early in 2010.
