Arran Eco Savvy Reuse Micro-hubs
Arran Eco Savvy is delighted to introduce Michael Gettins.
Michael is Eco Savvy’s Reuse Micro hubs project manager, he has had a very busy few weeks getting to know all the volunteers at Eco Savvy in our Whiting Bay re-use community shop and meeting many of our customers.
The reuse micro hub project begins with employing part time hub managers for our eight villages, Michael has been busy interviewing for these posts and we will soon be introducing our excellent hub managers for your village.
Eco-Savvy’s new project is ‘Arran Eco Savvy Reuse Micro-hubs’ which aim to create an island wide network of reuse and up-cycling sites which will encourage local communities to come together to tackle waste and build a more sustainable future.
These micro-hubs will be focal points for waste reduction – promoting up-cycling though skills sharing, reuse through swap shops and delivering educational events. Each hub will be located in an existing community space and by collaborating with established Arran groups the aim is that no one on Arran will ever be more than four miles from an Eco Savvy Hub.
This is a big project and a great challenge for everyone on Arran to make it a huge success.
This project is funded through the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund and the European Regional Development Fund.
