The Glasgow Green Map is published!!

Posted by hclinch Wednesday, 1 August 2007- 9:29 pm

The first Glasgow wide Green Map, marketed under the eco brand name dear green place, has been published. 20,000 copies of the map will be distributed throughout the city over the next month.

This 'Reuse' themed map features over a 120 charity shops and community based enterprises that provide people with the opportunity to donate and buy reusable house hold goods.

This is the first time that information about these opportunities has been collated and published. Each year in Glasgow over 145,000 items that could be reused currently go to landfill. This project aims to encourage people to find an alternative way of disposing of these valuable resources and support the community based initiatives that provide these services.

The Glasgow Guide to Reuse has been developed by a dedicated team of volunteer map makers, coordinated by Radius Glasgow. Funding for the project was secured from The Glasgow Community Recycling Forum, SUSTand various other agencies.

The volunteers continue to develop the web based version of the map and hope to broaden the map’s content once it has been established.

If you would like to obtain a copy of the map please email
