The Greener Festival organised by Greener Henley on the 16th Nov in Henley was a local gathering to encourage people to follow an eco-friendly lifestyle. There was few dozen stalls representing ‘green’ groups in Henley such as Plastic Free Henley, Repair Cafe and Clean Air for Henley. Plastic Free Henley was there to share tips and suggestions on how to reduce our plastic pollution starting with an individual plan we could all easily follow and showing some alternatives for a conscious shopping.
Exhibition held in the Community Gallery space at the River & Rowing Museum on plastics, including interviews and art work from environmentalists and local businesses and schools. On the 30th August there will be a Green Day at the museum in conjunction with this exhibition - talks from Lynne Tambourine and Helen Astle and a litter picking afternoon. Contact the River & Rowing Museum for more information on this.
This is a sculpture of an eye made from non-recyclable plastics. It was made by Julia Carey to exhibit in the 2017 Henley Arts Trail with the intention of starting the conversation of plastic reduction & recycling. The sculpture is called 'Eye Matter' as a reminder that - WE matter, I matter, YOU matter and our environment matters. If you would like to use this sculpture for educational purposes please contact us.
The Refill Henley campaign was rolled out in Henley on Thames in October 2017 with the help of Councillor Sarah Miller. We are now an established Refill town and part of the wider national Refill campaign started by Natalie Fee. Refill helps to reduce plastic bottle waste with the help of participating businesses by reminding people that they can REFILL their bottle with free water instead.
