Funding helps The Green Robin social enterprise host climate fair at Lanarkshire church

A social enterprise initiative that promotes a plastic-free and zero-waste lifestyle is this month holding its second event in Wishaw.

The Green Robin, which was started up by Emma Ferla, will be holding a Spring Climate Fair at Wishaw Old Parish on Saturday, March 26.

The eco-friendly fair is being funded by Keep Scotland Beautiful, allowing the social enterprise to provide free workshops for the community and give away some samples of plastic-free products.

Emma told Lanarkshire Live: “We have more amazing stalls with fabulous makers all using sustainable practices and selling eco friendly products.

“From woodwork home wear by local carpenters using local fallen trees to sea glass treasure jewellery and plastic free alternative products.”

The Spring Climate fair will run from 10am to 2pm on the day at the church at 110 Main Street.

It will also feature a free drop-in jewellery making workshop throughout the day, where you can make your own pair of earrings out of waste materials.

There are also two free decoupage workshops running during the event.

Decoupage is a means of customising furniture and other household items. Although they are free, the decoupage workshops are ticketed and the first between 10.30 and 11.30am is already fully booked.

Tickets for the second workshop which will run from noon until 1pm are available online.

There will also be a café where you can grab food and refreshments.
