Welcome to Sustainable Merton

Local action for a low carbon future

Sustainable Merton is a community led initiative giving local residents, groups, organisations and businesses the opportunity to stimulate practical action to make our area a sustainable community.

We are engaged in projects covering renewable energy and energy saving, local food growing, water conservation and raising awareness of the issues associated with climate change. We are working in partnership with Merton Council and with schools, community groups and businesses across Merton.

Sustainable Merton activities - solar, gardening, stalls and growing vegetables
