The launch of a new green guide for Powys residents and businesses will be a ‘go to’ place for environmentally friendly suppliers, and a range of actions to take part in to create a greener, more cohesive and more prosperous Powys.#

After much preparation and expert input, Powys Action on the Climate Emergency (PACE) has produced an interactive website for people and organisations across the county. It will enable anyone to get involved and share ideas on how individuals can make small but significant contributions to helping fight the crisis affecting the climate and nature.

“From taking easy steps to make sure your bank or pension fund is not investing your money in planet wrecking business, to knowing which phone to buy to minimise its environmental footprint, we want all to share ideas and experiences” said the project coordinator Diana Allen.

“Wherever you live in the county, there are simple, small, low or no cost tweaks people can make, and the more that follow your example, the more effect it has. Powys is a big county, and this website aims to bring people and communities together, as ‘Team Powys’.

“Green community organisations and businesses can list on the site and create their own page. Organisers of environment friendly events can post here – all for free. Online is a great way to network every corner of our large County”.


Powys based green businesses are encouraged to list themselves on the guide, so residents can easily find them, buy local and ‘greenswap’ – that is, swapping your usual brand for an environmentally friendly version. The aim is to help the entire county community to work together for the planet, the local economy and the future, creating a greener and more prosperous Powys.

Cllr Charlton said “We all know that the worlds temperature is rising, we all know we have a climate emergency on our hands, but that doesn’t mean to say that we can’t do something about it.”

She continued, “There has never been a better time for young and old, town and country, to come together and join forces to secure a sustainable and prosperous future. The Green Guide is here to help all of us do just that.”

The launch will be online on Monday 5th December at 7.30pm. Information at
