Hey all, I saw a post on Facebook, I thought I would share! I haven't tried these yet but will very soon.. "Want to help the environment and keep warm at the same time? Simply switch to Used Coffee Logs in your burner or stove instead of wood and you’ll instantly make a difference! Available from our Roastery in Semley, Shaftesbury at just £8 for a 16 log bag - you can even burn the bag, which is made from recycled paper! Made from Used Coffee Grounds, switch today from burning wood to a more environmentally friendly fuel. 1 million tonnes of Used Coffee Grounds are sent to UK Landfills each year! Once at Landfill the grounds decompose and produce Methane which is 34 times more damaging to the environment than Carbon. Help us divert this valued asset and stop burning wood when these logs burn longer and hotter! All of our Eco Coffee Roasters are powered by these logs, Eco Roast Technology, producing one of the most environmentally friendly coffees in the world. Have you discovered our latest ECO ROAST Barista’s Choice Coffee’s? There is certainly something to suit your tastes within this stunning sustainable range! Sustainability sourced quality coffee beans, ECO ROASTED daily by our experienced Roasters, deliver you the worlds most deliciously responsible cup! Visit our Roastery Outlet Store where you will find these Coffee Logs and our Eco Roasted Coffees, a beautiful range of loose leaf teas and an Aladdin’s cave of tea and coffee gadgets! The Coffee Hub Semley Business Park Shaftesbury SP7 9AN Our Outlet Store is open: Monday to Friday - 8:30am-5:30pm Saturdays - 10:30am-5:30pm * *Saturdays are subject to availability as we run a closed event for Tours & Tasting Sessions."

"Rivers near you might be turning into plastic waterways. WHAT IS YOUR MP DOING ABOUT IT?" PLEASE help us by asking our MP Simon Hoare to pledge for plastic-free rivers: https://plasticfreerivers.org.uk/?source=FB&subsource=OCPOPSSOFB01FF&utm_source=gpeace&utm_medium=FB&utm_campaign=OCPOPSSOFB01FF&fbclid=IwAR2-KutVS_ApI8dKRYFnL1c8rcKl6aVMqb0der45sZRUGU_QdsLi889JGtQ "A study of UK rivers by Greenpeace UK has found plastic in all 13 rivers with the River Mersey containing proportionally more plastic pollution than the infamous Great Pacific Garbage Patch, an area recognised by scientists as one of the most plastic-polluted expanses of water on earth. That's shocking. I am writing as your constituent to ask that you pledge your support for a flagship Environment Bill that puts an end to plastic pollution, cleans up our environment and restores nature.  That means: - Backing legally binding targets to radically reduce the production and use of single-use plastic and put us on course to end all waste entering the environment for good. - Speaking directly to the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs and the Chancellor of the Exchequer about the need for this Bill to guarantee ambitious targets on single-use plastic reduction, healthy air, clean water, thriving wildlife and liveable green spaces, with a powerful watchdog to enforce them. - Signing the Greener UK Charter for the Environment that sets out in detail what an ambitious Environment Bill should include. We’ve all seen harrowing images of plastics in our oceans, but this problem is right on our doorstep.  To fix it, we need serious action. Recycling alone will not come close to meeting the challenge that faces us, particularly as plastic production is set to quadruple over the next twenty years. We need legislation to urgently reduce the amount of plastic that we use in order to end our pollution crisis and let our waterways thrive again. But it doesn’t stop there - the pollution in our rivers is indicative of an even greater problem - the decline of our natural world. We need the government to show leadership and restore not just the rivers that connect us, but also the air we breathe and the soil where nature takes root.  That is why I need you to represent my views and pledge to actively call for a strong Environment Bill." PLEASE SHARE WHERE YOU CAN! Many thanks, Aimee

Hi All, I am Aimee and I run the social media accounts, newsletters and help with the running of the website for Planet Shaftesbury. I would love to find someone who would be willing to dedicate some time, to help me with researching local events through newspapers, social media events and websites. For example, I don't have much time to look through Dorset Wildlife Trusts events, and other organisations such as this, to help promote their events to our Planet Shaftesbury network. If this is something you feel you could help me with, please text or call on 07715 355727 or email on aimeederosa.c@gmail.com. I look forward to hearing from you! Many thanks, Aimee :)

Check out Beebombs Dorset! 🐝 "Beebombs are handmade, native wildflower seedballs. Our aim is to bring the bees back to Britain by helping to redress the wildflower habitat loss that is harming many species of pollinators. You can help #bringthebeesback by creating your own wildflower meadow. No gardening or tilling required, just throw our Beebombs onto cleared ground and await the blossom of colour and buzz of bees to come." https://www.facebook.com/BeebombsDorset/

Hi All, Saw this petition GreenPeace have set up... "UK supermarkets currently generate 800,000 tonnes of plastic packaging every year. But our oceans can’t stomach any more plastic! From turtles entangled in six pack rings to whales with stomachs full of plastic bags, the effects of plastic pollution can be devastating. UK supermarket Iceland has announced its own-brand packaging is going plastic-free. By ditching plastic packaging, supermarkets have the power to lead the way in dramatically reducing the amount of single-use plastic produced. Add your name to the petition and tell UK supermarkets to follow Iceland’s lead and ditch throwaway plastic packaging." Please sign & share.... https://secure.greenpeace.org.uk/page/s/plastic-free-supermarkets?source=WB&subsource=OCPOPSPEWB01LK&utm_source=gpeace&utm_medium=WB&utm_campaign=OCPOPSPEWB01LK
