Groups share ideas on wast­ing less

The Oban Times - - NEWS -

A TALK to help more peo­ple waste less in Lochaber turned out to be mu­tu­ally ben­e­fi­cial.

Cara MacKay and Re­becca Thoms from Lochaber En­vi­ron­men­tal Group (LEG) were guest speak­ers at SWI Lochaber Fed­er­a­tion’s Au­tumn Rally in the Sal­va­tion Army Hall, Fort Wil­liam, ear­lier this month.

Re­becca Thoms from LEG said: ‘Cara and my­self en­joyed giv­ing the pre­sen­ta­tion and I think the group came away with new in­for­ma­tion so we felt it went well. Many peo­ple didn’t re­alise the coun­cil last year changed what you can and can­not put in your blue bin so a lot of the dis­cus­sion took place around that. We also spoke about our main project which is zero waste. The ladies told us about com­pe­ti­tions they had run, in­clud­ing how to make some­thing new from some­thing old and also some recipes – such as how to cre­ate a meal from what’s in your fridge or from things you were ready to throw out, so those ac­tu­ally gave us a lot of good ideas about things we can look into mov­ing for­ward and can then pass on to other groups.’
