Eco Savvy is looking to appoint new trustees. We wish to appoint trustees who will strengthen and support Eco Savvy’s ongoing work through their knowledge, networks and experience – and in accordance with our charitable aims.

Eco Savvy is seeking individuals with a strong environmental conscience and a passion for working towards a sustainable future. A background in administration, project development and/or from the environment and engineering sectors is especially desirable. We’d also welcome individuals with other relevant experience.

An understanding of the issues facing island communities is important as are the ambassadorial skills needed to work well with the Arran community. An understanding of charity regulations is desirable but not essential.

What trustees do

  • Meet once a month.
  • Support our current projects and develop new possibilities. 
  • Work in partnership with the other trustees to ensure the charity is effectively managed.
  • Provide guidance and mentorship to the office bearers of the charity
  • Be prepared to initiate, support, represent the charity or take leadership in activities which are aimed at making Arran a zero-waste, energy efficient sustainable Island.

How to apply


    The shop opened on 18th April 2014 run entirely by volunteers and located in Whiting Bay village on the Isle of Arran.

    The purpose is to save unwanted items from being sent to landfill by finding another use and helping us all to reduce the plastics we use. It's not just about volunteering!
