Suffolk – Creating the Greenest County

What can we do locally?

Creating the Greenest County is an ambition that involves the whole county in enhancing our natural and historic environment and responding to climate change.

 

This aspiration brings together partners and projects from across Suffolk and seeks to inspire further actions in individuals, communities, businesses and schools. Everyone has their part to play in making Suffolk greener, explore the links below and find out how you can play your part.

shopping local is a great way to go green

Shop Sudbury Pledge

The local economic benefits of shopping on our high street (online or in person) are well documented, but did you know that by shopping local you are also doing your bit to save the planet? Here's how: 

1. Reducing lorry & air miles - every order with a multi-national online carries with it hundreds, if not thousands of air and road miles. Sudbury's high street is almost 70% independent and many of our businesses are committed to producing or sourcing what they sell as locally as possible.

2. Less unnecessary packaging - Reduce your unrecyclable waste by shopping on Sudbury Market or with our high street stores. Many only use recyclable bags or just remember your tote for your local goodies!

3. Local supporting local - Many of our local restaurants and cafes buy their ingredients at Sudbury Market or with local suppliers. This cycle of Sudbury support creates local jobs, keeps the economic benefits in Sudbury and reduces air miles.

4. Made in Sudbury - More than ever Sudbury is heralding the talent on our doorstep, we have long been an industrious town, from silk to brick, furniture to art, not forgetting the beer and honey! Our high street is stacked with products made by crafty locals - go forth, explore and join the Shop Sudbury Pledge!

THE BIG DRAW FESTIVAL 2021:
MAKE THE CHANGE

Green Sundays is part of the Global Big Draw Festival 2021:

Make the Change. 

The Big Draw Festival 2021 is all about the relationship between people and our living environments. The past year has presented us all with an opportunity to re-evaluate the way we do things. How can our local actions have a global impact? Thinking about where and how we shop, what we eat, how we build, travel, what energies and fuels we develop, all actively support a positive change for good.

 

Thinking more locally and creatively is key to this change. We look forward to getting crafty while we host Green Sundays!
