Greener Kirkcaldy is an environmental community group that helps local people to reduce their carbon footprints and fuel bills, and promotes environmentally friendly choices.
Since April 2010 we have run an advice centre in Kirkcaldy town centre, worked with community groups to raise awareness of environmental issues, and organised a wide range of events. We advise and support people on a range of environmental issues such as energy efficiency, greener transport options from walking and cycling to car-sharing and fuel efficient driving, waste reduction and local food – promoting local produce and encouraging those who want to grow their own.
Our current Lang Toun Energy Savers project helps people, particularly older people, to save money on their electricity & gas bills and gives advice on energy-saving measures such as home insulation. We offer home visits to give advice on saving energy and a home handyman service for small energy saving measures. Our new Cosy Kirkcaldy Kids will add a focus on families with children to this work.
We have recently been awarded funding from the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund, for the new Kirkcaldy Goes Greener! project. The new project will centre on community engagement and volunteer development, with practical projects focussing on energy efficiency in older ‘hard to heat’ properties; sustainable food events and skills development courses; waste reuse events and community mapping of local options for reuse and repair. We will work with schools and youth groups, and will develop our formal membership.
We work with a many other local organisations, community groups and individuals in our projects. We are also looking for new members and volunteers. If you would like any more information or would like to get involved in any way, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
