Jo is urging community groups in East Dunbartonshire to apply for a new green grants initiative which helps fund local environmental projects.
The Green Insurance Company is offering grants of up to £2000 to support community projects and is inviting applications from across the country. Potential projects could include:
o A community garden to grow your own vegetables or a wildlife garden to encourage biodiversity
o A project to increase awareness of environmental issues and educate children to develop good environmental habits
o Funding to help make a local community building more energy efficient
o Help to start up an environmental society or to host a community eco-fair to encourage people to become more environmentally aware
You can find more information or apply online atwww.greeninsurancecompany.co.uk/giving. Applications close on 29th August.

“This is a great opportunity for people in East Dunbartonshire to have a stake in the environmental future of our area. I’m urging all residents to think about how a Green Grant could benefit an environmental project in their community and to get in touch with The Green Insurance Company to try and make it happen.”
Commenting, Head of the Green Insurance Company, Gaynor Wood said:
“We want to give people throughout the UK the opportunity to make a difference within their communities and supporting green initiatives is a great way to do this. We can’t wait to start getting in the applications and would urge community groups and residents to get in touch with their projects as soon as possible.”
