About us.....

Abingdon Carbon Cutters is a Community Action Group formed to help reduce the carbon footprint of Abingdon in response to climate change, and to promote a sustainable and resilient lifestyle for our town as fossil fuel stocks decline. We meet on the third Wednesday of each month at St Ethelwold's House, which is here.

At some meetings, we have guest speakers to present various topics, and at others we discuss our own personal actions to address climate change. The group has a focus on encouragement, both of one another, and of the town community.

1. Eco-kitchen workshops

Sunday 26th July 2009 9.30am to 2.00pm
Saturday 1st August 2009 9.30 am to 2.00pm

If your dream is to have an eco kitchen, then you’ll be fascinated by this exciting eco kitchen workshop, which gives homeowners access to eco experts with years of knowledge and experience.

Developed in partnership between COIN and SEED-Group this Eco-Kitchen workshop is perfect for homeowners undertaking their own kitchen eco-redesign or briefing builders and Architects on a kitchen extension.

Sally Harper, Founder, SEED-Group and workshop presenter commented: "It can be really difficult for the eco aware consumer to get good advice and support, on the design and build of an authentic, sustainable eco kitchen. The spring series of workshop have proved to us, that people want to make more considered, and confident, green living choices in the future and have been delighted to meet eco experts. We have been immensely pleased to hear from so many of our workshop attendees who have felt inspired to make changes and look forward to inspiring and better informing many more people”.

Previous attendees have been kind enough to email the following comments:

“Thank you so much for a most informative and enjoyable workshop yesterday. It was a really illuminating day - and not just about the lighting! Although that was an especially interesting area to me, as was the overall topic of energy usage by different appliances” Doug Miles workshop attendee.

“Thanks again for the workshop - really enjoyed it and certainly came away with lots of ideas and renewed enthusiasm for our project!!!!!”. Sally Mullard workshop attendee.

“Thank you all again for such a good day. It really did spur me on in lots of ways”. Clare Newgass, workshop attendee.

“Thank you for a marvellous workshop”. Matthew Roman workshop attendee.

The Oxfordshire Eco-buildings Open Days will take place from 10-13th September this year - and we'd like your help in publicising them in your local shop, in your workplace, or your local community . Once the details are up on the website we'll send round an email flyer for distribution, but if you are able to help by putting up a poster and/or distributing some leaflets with full details of the participating buildings (notice board), please send an email to jo@climatex.org together with:
your name and address and the number of posters and leaflets you'd like.
