Applications for the 2017 Eco Fund are now closed. 

The Eco Fund was launched in 2008 when we led the way in recycling by levying a 5p charge on one-trip carrier bags in an attempt to reduce the number used. In the first year alone, bag consumption was cut by an astonishing 90%.

The funds raised each year from bag sales are distributed to worthy local projects that protect and regenerate our local environment.

Since 2008, we have paid out over £280,000 to help with environmental causes in the islands.
