  • Green cleaning ideas
  • Zero waste living support

“Earth Carers has been my springboard into all sorts of aspects of living more sustainably, particularly in getting to know more people locally.”

“What I have learnt has been transferred to my family, friends and acquaintances.”

“It was a real wake up call to learn in depth about how our waste is conventionally dealt with.”

“As an Earth Carer I have become enthusiastic about composting, worm farming, recycling and careful purchasing.”
