ABout us

Founded by a local resident, Sustainable Merton has been making a difference to sustainable living in Merton since 2007.

Still going, and growing, strong, Merton's local environmental charity continues to inspire, engage and influence local people and partner organisations to be the solution to environmental issues. Local action, global impact.

Our organisation reaches out to residents, partners and businesses, and has a number of dedicated volunteers - our Community Champions, who contribute to the organisation’s activity and development, complementing the work carried out by our small team of staff and trustees.
