Transition Lymington challenge us to reduce our use of plastic
Lymington 2020 Vision - Month 3: Easy Plastic Swaps
This July as a part of their 2020 Vision, Transition Lymington challenge us to reduce our use of plastic. Here are some ideas of easy ways to avoid plastic - see how many you can achieve this month!
2020 Vision was launched by Transition Lymington in May 2018, with the objective of reminding ourselves why we love Lymington and what we can do to help enjoy it and protect it, making a sustainable community for the future. In May the challenge was to observe and interact with our wonderful surroundings, in June the challenge was to save energy. Every month a list of achieveable suggestions is proposed - small things that could start making a really big difference.
Let's see how many swaps we can make for plastic this month!

Transition Lymington launch their 2020 Vision
What we can all do to help enjoy and protect Lymington.
On 1 May 2018, Transition Lymington launch their 2020 Vision. The objective is to remind ourselves why we love Lymington and what we can do to help enjoy it and protect it. The vision is for a sustainable and thriving community that we love.
Each month for the next 20 months, Transition Lymington will release a short list of 20 easy, 'do-able' challenges. These will be themed and its up to you how many you do. The list may give you other ideas too.
May 2018 is the first month and the theme is Observe and Interact. The challenges listed are to allow you become more connected with Lymington, the New Forest and our coastline and include ideas such as ‘listen to the sound of the waves,’ ‘look at the stars and the moon’ and ‘have a picnic in the New Forest.’
Every month the theme will change and you can expect a huge range of challenges and suggestions such as ‘easy plastic swaps’ ‘saving energy’ and ‘growing food at home.'
Lymington 2020 Vision is using a Facebook page – Lymington 2020 Vision – as an interactive place where you can print off the lists and then post your ideas and upload photos of the challenges you have had fun completing. You can also view and download the lists here at Lymington.com.
If you plan to do a challenge, please make sure when you get there, it is safe to do so - you take part at your own risk.
