MINUTES FROM THE SECOND MEETING OF THE CORSCOMBE AND HALSTOCK GREEN LIVING GROUP

MINUTES FROM THE SECOND MEETING OF THE CORSCOMBE AND HALSTOCK GREEN LIVING GROUP

 

The subject for this meeting was Spend Less Eat Better and the meeting was held on 6th October 2021 at Deborah and Chris’ house.

There was a wide ranging discussion about the benefits of organic vs local non organic food and the benefits of veg boxes vs local food.  Some group members were able to achieve zero food waste by meticulous planning of their meals.  Some members are vegetarian, others still enjoy meat and dairy and there was more discussion about understanding the environmental impacts of products such as tofu vs pasture fed, local meat.

Agreed actions from the meeting: –

* some group members will keep meat and dairy food diaries so that they can be clear on quantities eaten and their provenance.  Information to be shared at next meeting

* all group members to look at the Go Go Eco website and share their views by email before the next meeting.  Possibility of arranging a Van Stop in Corscombe.

* all group members to look at the terracycle website to review best ways of recycling waste that would otherwise go to landfill.  Deborah said she would be willing to take in dentistry products (empty toothpaste tubes, tooth brushes etc) and possibly Tetrapaks.  All to report at next meeting

* Mark to investigate the provenance of Co op tofu and report back.

The group agreed a name of Treadlightly.

Next meeting will be 2nd November 2021 at 19.00 hrs at Tagra Farm on the subject of Spend Less on Energy.
