14.12.2007ecodyfi press release

Gwenno Davies has been appointed as the new Sustainable Living Officer for ecodyfi. She will be working on the Dyfi Footprint project and on the Waste Watchers scheme in the Dyfi Valley.

The Dyfi Footprint project will be out and about in the community with a questionnaire to help local groups and individuals measure their "ecological footprint" – that is, to see how much land they need to maintain their spending patterns.

Gwenno will be available to advise people on practical ways of reducing their impact on the environment.

Gwenno, who lives in Llanbrynmair and has a degree in Food, Nutrition and Health, explained that this can often be both simple and painless.

"One example is purchasing local food", she said. "It reduces our reliance on foods that have traveled thousands of miles to our plate.

"This not only reduces our ecological footprint but also supports local businesses, moving us towards a more sustainable economy".

"Another example is reducing our dependence on cars", she said, "We want to create more options for getting from one place to another, for example by cycling or using public transport".

Ecodyfi's new staff member is picking up where Bev Dimmock left off. Bev left in July to help manage the expansion of JPW Construction Ltd, her family business.

Gwenno said she looks for options and solutions rather than makes people feel they're not doing enough. To find out more about the projects or to ask her to come to a meeting of your club or society, contact Gwenno on 01654 703965.
