Welcome to Green Our Herts

Our climate is changing but we can have a big effect by making small improvements which can also help us to save money and improve our lives. This site aims to make it easier by bringing together information on how we could reduce our impact on the environment and adapt to our changing climate.

Electrical Reuse and Recycling Events

Do you have an old dusty toaster stored at the back of a cupboard or have recently upgraded your computer?

On average we all buy 3 new electrical items per year.  Electrical items can be reused or recycled and should not be put in your bin, as in landfill hazardous substances can leak out causing soil and water contamination. 

Items in working order can be reused by someone else or the plastic and precious metal parts (including gold and copper) can be shredded and reused.  This all saves resources and energy.

Over the next few months collection points will be set up all over Hertfordshire to take anything with a plug or a battery, broken or in working order.  Visit Wasteaware for more information or check if your local Household waste site takes electrical items.





How Green is Your Home?

Almost anything we do has some kind of an impact on the environment. Unfortunately most of our actions have harsher effects than we realise.

In order to lessen these effects we have researched many subjects (e.g. transport, energy and outdoor recreation) related to everyday life. From this research we have compiled the most relevant and interesting information and presented it all under one roof. To make the browsing of our website even easier we have designed an interactive house summarising the main points.
