Greenredeem Community Programme

Greenredeem works with Ealing Council to offer rewards to residents for recycling.  Greenredeem has allocated £5,000 to support sustainable projects within your community. They are creating a league table of projects that

•           Use innovative ways to communicate environmental issues in communities.

•           Create new ways of thinking and behaving in an environmentally friendly way

•           Empower people to be advocates for a sustainable environment in their own communities.

•           Encourage partnerships between local residents and their community.

•           Embrace diversity and build links among people of diverse ethnic, racial and socio-economic backgrounds.

 

The projects that will receive the funds will be decided by Ealing residents who donate their Greenredeem points to the community.

From 1 July 2016 the project at the top of the league will receive

First place £1,500

Second place £750

Third place £500

There will be other projects that receive £250.

Greenredeem is inviting applications until 4 December. If your project is successful it will be placed in the league table on the Greenredeem site from 1 January 2016.

When making your application please bear in mind Greenredeem will not fund

•           Fundraising events, event sponsorships and/or the purchase of tables at events

•           Solo adventure travel (such as Outward Bound, Duke of Edinburgh expeditions, etc…)

•           Scholarships or fellowship schemes
