Around four fifths (80%) of Scotland’s carbon footprint comes from all the goods, materials and services which we produce, use and often throw out after just one use. This is the single greatest cause of the climate crisis... Carbon savings can be still achieved by accelerating the transition to a circular economy and eliminating the generation of waste in the first place. Waste prevention will not only help us to slash our carbon impacts but also reach the 15% national waste reduction target by 2025.*
Creative Sustainable Futures has been made possible through generous funding from the Scottish Government’s Community Led Local Development Fund via The Shetland Local Action Group.
