Join Hackney’s Sustainability Day on Saturday 17 November

Hackney residents can pick up energy saving advice and find out more about how they can pursue a more environmentally sustainable lifestyle at Hackney’s second annual Sustainability Day on Saturday 17 November.

This year’s low waste and zero plastic event in Hackney Town Hall Square will welcome over 30 organisations to show residents how they can lower their utility bills, get cycling, recycle more, grow their own food and much more!

The day will also feature a seminar, with discussions about what Hackney Council is doing to help tackle the multiple environmental challenges faced by the planet. Residents who attend the seminar can bring their ideas on sustainability and ask questions about the Council’s plans.

Alongside advice there will also be free low energy lightbulbs, free refreshments and great activities for families, including face painting, a free smoothie bike, and a visit from a giant bumblebee who will explain how bees make honey!

Cllr Jon Burke, Cabinet Member for Energy, Sustainability, & Community Services
We’re working hard to reduce our use of the fossil fuels driving global warming, improve the sustainability of our housing stock, plant trees and create new green spaces, and set up our own publicly-owned energy company, resulting in cheaper and cleaner energy for the people of Hackney. Sustainability Day will give people a chance to learn more about how they can contribute to an environmentally sustainable future and share their ideas with us on what more we can do to defend the planet for the benefit of Hackney residents present and future.
