"The Footprint Trust Ltd is a registered charity based on the Isle of Wight – founded in 2002.
We are dedicated to working with the Island’s community to promote the benefits of sustainable living.
This is achieved through practical projects and activities that raise awareness of all the relevant issues - demonstrating the idea of “acting locally and thinking globally."
Spread over these pages is information about the charity, its aims, objectives and roles, along with practical information.
This collection of information is designed to help you understand more about the way in which we can all help in reducing the ‘footprint’ of the Isle of Wight, and by doing so help make our environment a better place.
You can get involved in a little or a big way – reducing the amount of rubbish you throw away, driving less and more carefully, insulating your home, growing some of your own food and installing a waterbutt. You could become an ‘Energetic Champion,’ join our Adopt-A-Garden scheme, become a Cemetery Warden or a steward at Newport Riverfest…
Whilst others talk about helping the community and the environment we deliver action, thanks to the support of hundreds of keen individuals who assist us in our work. Thousands of Islanders have benefited from our projects, through reduced energy and water bills, along with local practical projects.
Everyone knows that in order to have a cleaner environment they need to do their bit, but are you? To make it easy for you, we have cut out the jargon and put it in everyday English! The environment needs your help, spend a few minutes reading how you can save your planet, and your money!
If you want specific information or want to get involved then please do not hesitate to contact us at email@example.com or leave a message on 01983 82-22-82. If you would like to make a donation towards our Adopt-A-Garden scheme, or any of our other projects, then please do have a chat with us.
