My name is Kayleigh I moved to Rainham three years ago and as a local resident that has been interested and watched from the sidelines to many environmental issues over the past twenty years I want to actively make a difference to the town that I bring my children up in and also work.
I have been so encouraged over this past year of connecting with more and more people, that like me don’t really know the best thing to do but still wants to do something.
I’m continually learning and realising that I am not anywhere near having the lowest footprint but that I can always keep trying, the beautiful quote ‘we don’t need a handful of people being zero waste perfectly, we need everyone doing it imperfectly’
And that is so very true to what I believe.
The momentum building in Rainham is giving me hope that as a town we can and are making a difference.
