Transition Malvern Hills (TMHills) continues to promote and support sustainable projects and initiatives in Malvern and the surrounding area. We are organising regular meet ups, (under the title of TMHills Eco-Chat, Thoughts and Action), for individuals and groups to discuss how Malvern is making the positive changes needed to reduce our environmental impact.
Due to the Virus Crisis these meeting are now being held online using Zoom. For information on how to use Zoom see here.

Make sure lights are switched off and doors are closed in rooms that are not being used.
Put on an extra jumper and turn your heating thermostat down by 2 degrees.
Have a ‘no car day’ once a week.
Talk about climate change with family, friends and work colleagues. Share your thoughts and ideas.
Create a wildlife friendly garden, encourage bees, birds and other wildlife. Don’t use pesticides or herbicides, look for eco friendly alternatives.
Support local wildlife trusts/groups.
Think twice before buying clothes or goods - do you really need them? Malvern Repair Cafe can repair most things for a donation.
Reduce, reuse and recycle everything where possible. Request non plastic packaging on your online purchases. Malvern and Worcester have a shop to refill your household cleaners, soaps and dried foods, bring your own containers.
Buy local foods wherever possible. We are lucky to have Greenlink in Great Malvern and Natural Choice in Barnards Green that sell local produce. Cut down on your meat eating.
Malvern Hills District Council (MHDC) will consider a motion to declare a climate emergency on 23th July.
The meeting will take place at the Worcestershire County Council chambers due to renovation on the local MHDC chambers.
Please come along to support this motion.
You can join us at the WCC chambers at 7:00pm, or you can take the 5:09pm train with us from Great Malvern to Worcester Foregate Street, where XR will hold a march through Worcester city centre to the WCC offices on Spetchley Road, Worcester WR5 2NP. It is about a 2 mile walk. Bring banners.
