Local Sustainable Hero
 Mar 18, 2016  Blog, April, 2016 Newsletter

We're launching a special campaign to find Waltham Forest’s ‘Sustainable Hero’ 2016.
We're celebrating all the actions we take in this Borough, both big and small to save on energy consumption, reduce waste and recycle.  

As well as larger projects, we want to showcase the small acts that make a big difference.  

It doesn’t matter how small or how large your project is - tell us about it.
You might be working on a community parking project.  You might be recycling food waste for composting, planning to re-use your Easter Egg boxes in a number of creative ways or simply using up those brown bananas to make a loaf – these are all sustainable activities and we want to hear about all of them!
Showcasing and sharing these inspirational ideas will help make our sustainable ‘day to day’ the norm for everyone.  It’s also very satisfying to make the most of what you’ve got, save money and have a positive environmental impact.
We're talking to you!
You might be five years old or ninety five - ideas are welcome from all ages, individuals, schools, community groups, businesses.  Or for a fun project for family and friends you might want to get a ‘best idea’ competition going.

How do you become a HERO?
We’re looking for a short write up on your project and you can share with ItDoesTheJob.com at any of the following:  email: [email protected]; tweet: @itdoesthejob; #localsustainablehero
The deadline for entries is 31st May 2016.  

What's in it for me?
Apart from an enormous sense of wellbeing and sharing tips with your community?  Well, the winner will be announced in June to coincide with the ‘Green Open Homes’ initiative.  For more information and keeping up to date on how we’re doing check @itdoesthejob.com or keep checking the blog.  

The local ‘Sustainable Hero’ Award is supported by The Hornbeam Café and the winner will receive a local ‘Sustainable Hero’ 2016 certificate and a special prize.
