Climate Action Lewisham is a local residents’ action group working to support and generate initiatives in Lewisham that reduce our collective carbon footprint, and promote healthy and thriving neighbourhoods in the face of our climate and ecological crisis.
Green Your Eats
Eating less meat makes a big difference to carbon emissions and impact on the environment. Eating a plant-based diet also helps to reduce water use, and means much less waste if land can feed humans instead of livestock.
Climate Action Lewisham has launched a competition to showcase and celebrate venues in Lewisham which are offering delicious plant-based, planet-friendly food!

This guide will help you find local stores, markets and delivery services that offer and even specialise in plastic free purchasing.
Here are some guides covering some of the themes that our work addresses
