Join the Sunny Jar Eco Hub team for a series of free monthly workshops, sharing practical tools and ideas to reduce single use plastic and live more sustainably.

These workshops are for those who would like to learn tips on saving money, are concerned about plastic pollution and the impact on your health, and you would like to help increase awareness in your community.
Participants need to live or work in Poplar and be able to attend the majority of the sessions.
