Green Week Thurrock is a festival created by the community for the community, celebrating local climate action and exploring how we can build a greener, more sustainable future together
Come and join us to raise awareness of our local climate heroes, and the little changes each of us can make to help reverse the climate crisis.
Small actions can make a big difference
Together we can make a positive impact
Get involved and make your area greener
during Green Week Thurrock
Are you a part of a local group or business that would like to get involved by running an activity? Why not organise a litter pick of your local area, have a coffee morning or run a session of making eco and sustainable crafts?
Do you have 10 minutes to spare? Why not take part in the Green Week Thurrock Litter Pick Challenge? Let’s make Thurrock greener, how much litter can you collect in 10 minutes? Share your litter haul on social media using #ThurrockLitterPickChallenge
Let’s celebrate our local green spaces, from nature reserves to parks, and even your own backyard, allotment or balcony. Where do you go when you want some fresh air? Is there a green space that reminds you of a memory or about someone special? Take part in our Photography Challenge by sharing a photo of your favourite green space during Green Week Thurrock using #ThurrockGreenSpaces to be featured in our online gallery.
Here at Cece Luna we have been creating a series of costumes called the Plastic Parade entirely created from plastic packaging which would have otherwise gone to landfill because it is not currently recycled on the doorstep, as well as some exciting eco-craft tutorials which we will be sharing via our blog.
We are also excited to announce the Green Week Thurrock Eco Fayre which will take place on Sunday 26th September 2021 from 11am to 3pm in Grays Town Park, organised in collaboration with Friends of Grays Town Park, The Refill Cabin and Thurrock Festival. There will be a range of stalls from tasty treats to handmade homewares, and lots of fun activities to come down and see.
