New Leaf is helping to make life greener in Alresford.
New Leaf is helping to make life greener in Alresford, near Winchester. New Leaf started in May 2019 when we realised that many members of our community felt we should be doing more to help the environment. The New Leaf Facebook group was born, and membership continued to grow as the year progressed.
We quickly found that identifying where to start, where to focus our efforts and how to make positive changes isn’t always easy. Individuals were sharing local knowledge of recycling schemes and the efforts local companies are making to offer more sustainable services, but we identified a need for all this information to be gathered in one place, making it easier for those trying to adopt a more sustainable lifestyle.
