As Merton's local environmental charity, Sustainable Merton is inspiring, influencing and mobilising residents, businesses and key decision makers to be part of the solution to issues affecting the Merton community and our environment.
From reducing our consumption of energy and resources and valuing fresh, local food, to taking action to breathe cleaner air and reduce emissions, Sustainable Merton aims to influence the changes that will make our borough a healthier, happier and more sustainable community, now and for future generations to come.
The Loving Earth Project, founded by Merton resident Linda Murgatroyd, is a new community project that celebrates people, places, creatures and other things we love but which are threatened by growing environmental breakdown. The project aims to help people engage with the challenging issues of the Climate Crisis and species extinction using artsand crafts and motivated by love and to inspire people to make connections, change their behaviour and live a more sustainable lifestyle for a better future.
