Free course will reduce costs and help the planet

In partnership with the IW Rural Community Council the Footprint Trust are offering local charities, churches, voluntary organisations and social enterprises the opportunity of attending a free half day training Eco-Wise course, aimed at reducing their costs.

“Information will be made available so that staff and volunteers will gain the skills to cut costs and reduce environmental damage.”
Said Ray Harrington-Vail, the Footprint Trust’s Environmental Auditor, who will be leading the training.

Following on from the Eco-Wise event the Footprint Trust will then arrange a free visit to workplaces to give individual guidance on energy saving, water efficiency and recycling. They will also give people the skills to develop an environment policy, which could improve an organisation’s ability to bid for funding or to tender to deliver services.

The same free training event will be run twice on the following dates in Newport.

Thursday 6th December 9.30am – 12 Noon

Tuesday 11th December 1.30pm – 4pm
