12 Green Goddess Days of Christmas
On the first day of Christmas my true love said to me ...


  1. Declutter, donate to charities, spring clean before the décor goes up
  2. Use up jars, use up food in fridge & freezer to make room for festive food     Don’t forget the bathroom - Use up potions & lotions before opening new
  3. Write a letter to Santa no matter how old or young you are
  4. Why not send E-cards, use up spare cards before buying new, make your own
  5. Last years cards – This year’s gift tags
  6. Xmas Tree – Reuse or recycle tree, home compost or plant
  7. Wrapping paper - use up odd bits, buy wrapping paper you can recycle, wrap with re-useable bags & bows saved or new
  8. Xmas crackers – make your own with cloth or paper & great gifts inside
  9. Fruit and Veg & food- don’t over buy, plan meals, cook and allow people to help themselves
  10. Freeze leftovers straight away - no need for turkey sandwiches
  11. Pack up décor properly, advent box separately with unused Xmas cards 
  12. Reduce, reuse & recycle your cans, cartons, paper, plastic & glass containers

LOCAL AUTHOR LAUNCHES NEW GREEN SAVINGS GUIDE BOOK AND

RAISES MONEY FOR LOCAL NATURE RESERVE - 4 November 2015
Local author Jeannette Buckle launches her first book ‘Save Pounds and the Planet’ with a book signing at Smith and Kittle eatery and coffee shop, Station Road, Beaconsfield, Wednesday 4th November 10am till 2pm. This easy to use green savings guide book helps show us all how easy it is to save time, money, energy, water and waste with quick and easy bite sized tips. ‘You don’t have to make a choice between eco friendly and cost effective.’ says Jeannette.
What’s more with every book sold Jeannette will donate £1 to Friends of Holtspur Bank LNR (local nature reserve). Les Davies, Chairman of the Friends of Holtspur Bank LNR  said ‘We were delighted to be asked to help support and raise awareness of this important refuge for wildlife, rich in biodiversity’ ‘A book about how to reduce your impact on the environment seemed a perfect fit’.
Jeannette has volunteered locally for many years as a Master Composter, Energy Champion and this year has chaired the Environment Working Group for Vision for Beaconsfield where local residents were asked to get involved and prepare a report towards a new town plan for Beaconsfield. Councillor Patrick Hogan, the Deputy Mayor of Beaconsfield said ‘I would like to congratulate Jeannette on this useful everyday guide book and her enthusiasm and skill to highlight how we can all benefit as well as the environment’, ‘and her generosity in raising much needed funds for our local nature reserve.’  
Jeannette has worked in the environmental sector for over 24 years coupled with having various allergies since a child has fuelled her passion on all the everyday things we could all do to make a difference without compromising our quality of life from our own home. What started as a hobby while living in Paris ended up a passion in this easy to read green savings guide book.

Looking forward to be at the Big Green Event Expo in October where my books will be on sale and me poised with pen to sign any books. More details at http://thebiggreenevent.co.uk/the-big-green-event/

CAN WOMEN COOL IT? You bet they can! - 7 November 2015
Can women cool it?  Wycombe Environment Centre’s very own Climate Change conference in High Wycombe this November was a big hit not only locally but internationally, with both local and international presenters and audience in Wycombe, with a further 70 delegates around the world on the live webinar.‘The best ideas from the workshop session of the day will be recorded in a e-book to be on sale and sent to the Climate Change Conference is Paris later this month’ says Frances Alexander, Founder of Wycombe Environment Centre and brainchild and driving force behind this event.
The first keynote speaker was PROFESSOR JOANNA HAIGH, CBE, FRS, from Imperial College London, a solar and climate expert who was named as one of 20 women (internationally) making waves in the climate change debate and has experience of offering clear rebuttals to politicians applying less-than-rigorous approach to climate change.  LESLEY ABDELA MBE spoke about the importance of women being involved at every level tackling the challenge of Global Warming and Climate Change.
Local author of ‘Save Pounds and the Planet’, Jeannette Buckle, one of the panel of experts, said ‘This was a truly inspirational event, and I look forward to it being a permanent feature on the Wycombe calendar.  Wycombe Environment Centre who organised the event and their Chair Frances Alexander, celebrating her 80th birthday, continue to be a force for good in Wycombe, helping local people reduce their impact on the planet working in their community’.
