Eco Awareness Day
Bromsgrove's First Eco Awareness Day
Amber Support Services were lucky enough to obtain a stall at Bromsgrove's Eco Awareness Day which took place recently at Bromsgrove Library. Lots of information was available on the day about Compost Bins and composting and Green Ape also had a stall there promoting healthy eating and environmental awareness.
Visitors to the event were able to make a smoothie using pedal power, buy recycled craft items from ourselves and get advice on how to waste less and save money. We had on offer many things including:
- Upcycled sheet music and maps which we had designed into cards
- Recycled wrapping paper which we had converted into FlowerPops
- Jam Jars recycled into garden night lights
- Pictures frames redesigned and repainted
Sian from Jumbled Purple (Have a read of her blog www.jumbledpurple.co.uk) came along and bought a numer of items, later tweeting with a photo "Cant believe all this cost £8 from talented peeps @AmberSupport! Lovely eco awareness morning"
The event was a success and we raised £43.00 for our Social Enterprise. We were also in the Newspaper in both the Bromsgrove Standard and the Worcester News
