Bentham Environmentally Sustainable Town, or BEST are a group of people from Bentham, North Yorkshire and the surrounding areas. We are working towards making Bentham an environmentally sustainable town in whatever ways we can.
It is a friendly group and anyone can join. Whatever interest you have in being “green” you can pursue it as part of the group.
Things we’ve looked at include saving money on your energy bills, green transport, seed swapping and growing your own and not forgetting the great shopping bag campaign (to reduce the use of throw-away plastic bags).
Our most popular events have been the Give & Take days (aimed at reducing waste going to landfill) and our Local Food week.
