Our story

by Arthur Potter, Tom Barbour and Sarah Sall from Climate Action Strathaven - Zero Carbon Tour interview

Climate Action Strathaven started their own bike repair shop to address community concerns on access to transport. They have fixed nearly 500 bikes in the past 18 months, to encourage people to swap cars for a more eco friendly mode of transport.

Climate Action Strathaven is working with the community to bring them together and look at community ideas to improve climate action and sustainability. Through the Strathaven Food Bank and the community fridge, which they have recently secured funding for, there will be a reduction in food waste in the local town.

Climate Action Strathaven has got a couple of projects including; Retrofit Strathaven, where they are working to improve the fabric of local buildings and homes to increase energy efficiency.
