Greener Ulverston is a community group run by a small committee that was set up in April 2019. They aim to help educate locals about various environmental issues and what they can do to help. One of their mottos is ‘simple changes, every day, by everyone’. They have set up various recycling points around Ulverston for pens, toothbrushes and toothpaste, contact lenses, and baby food pouches as well as promoting other schemes that exist. Other initiatives include a Summer Recycling Challenge that 1000 primary school children took part in, distribution of 210 free trees, co-organised the Global Climate Strike outside the Coronation Hall in September 2019, and they are running an Eco Club at Sir John Barrow Primary School.
