Welcome to Greener Kirkcaldy
Greener Kirkcaldy helps people to be more environmentally friendly and to save cash on their fuel bills. Our advice centre in Kirkcaldy town centre gives free and impartial information and support relevant to you and your home, on energy (saving energy or generating your own), eco-friendly food choices, and greener transport options (from fuel-efficient driving to cycling and walking).
The centre is open Fridays and Saturdays 9am – 5pm. Please come along to take a look around, take home a few leaflets or talk to one of our friendly staff or volunteers. We have free energy-saving gadgets to give away, and we sell refills of eco-friendly Ecover cleaning products.
We offer a home handyman service to undertake small energy saving jobs, such as insulating pipes or draughtproofing a door. This service is free to eligible people.
We can also give talks about our work to your group. Please get in touch if you are interested in working together or have any suggestions!
