Leytonstone Green Directory
A directory of 'green' businesses and initiatives in Leytonstone.
There are lots of people in Leytonstone trying to change the way we live, work and shop so that we can reduce carbon emissions and have a less harmful or, even better, a positive effect on the local and wider environment.
It's not always easy, though, to find out what is available. So, we decided to put together a list to help all of us - local businesses and residents - on that journey.
All of the groups and businesses listed are going the extra mile to have a positive impact, for example by...
- reducing waste - upcycling, repurposing, repairing, redistributing and recycling.
- moving away from single-use plastic, or more mindfully sourcing raw materials and packaging.
- conserving energy and/or using renewable energy sources.
- reducing transport miles by sourcing locally.
- considering the social and environmental impact of everything they do.
This site was on the point of launching when the Covid-19 pandemic struck. Please bear in mind that not all of the listed businesses will currently be trading, and that opening hours may differ from the ones listed. We strongly suggest that you get in touch with the business or group to check the current situation before making a special trip.
If you know of a business or community group you think should be included, please let us know. If they don't currently meet our criteria then we will try to offer suggestions and support in their efforts to become more 'green'.
The Leytonstone Green Directory has been initiated by Transition Leytonstone, and is created and maintained by volunteers.
