The HCWP brings together eight community groups in the Highlands in their efforts to reduce waste and promote sustainable consumption, in line with a net zero future. Our work is focused on food waste, the share & repair economy and packaging/single-use plastics.

The HCWP is coordinated by Keep Scotland Beautiful, the charity for Scotland’s environment, with a vision for a clean, green, sustainable Scotland. We have three goals – to combat climate change, tackle litter and waste, and protect and enhance the places we live, work and visit.

Being part of Highland Adapts allows us to connect and join forces with others working in the same space, helping to make the most of opportunities and initiatives for community engagement and action.

Climate hack: both as a society and as individuals, we need to rethink the way that we consume, and ultimately both use and waste less. This is a systemic change, but everyone has a part to play, and it’s important that everyone does what they can, however small or big. Change is a process.

Reduce and reuse where you can, share and repair instead of throwing away or buying new -these are some of the things we are working on at the HCWP.
