Sustainability on Sea: 22-30 September!

Sustainability… makes sense, n’est-ce pas? This week of events, jointly organised by Transition Town Hastings (TTH) and Energise Sussex Coast (ESC), is celebrating all things sustainable in our local area: gathering together as many of the organisations who are already thinking in sustainable terms. Starting with the ocean symposium, culminating in a big festival day and with all sorts of good stuff happening in between, you are very welcome to come along, check things out and get involved.

Whether you believe in climate change or not, living our lives more sustainably surely makes good common sense, writes HOT’s Zelly Restorick.

Latest Transition Town Hastings news!

HOT’s Zelly Restorick watched the inspirational documentary, Demain recently at The Electric Palace – about sustainable living and what we can do to survive and thrive in the face of climate change and other environmental threats. For her, the delightful highlight of the film was Rob Hopkins, Founder of the Transition Town movement saying that things don’t need to be all gloom and doom. Things could be FABULOUS!

Local businesses are encouraged to put a Refill sticker in their window to say that they’re willing to refill drinking water bottles for free. The scheme has an App to download, which gives the location of participating businesses.
