RoWAN is a waste awareness charity based in Highland whose aim is to help people cut their waste. The charity was formed 10 years ago, working initially in Ross-shire and then Inverness, but more recently working more widely with its Zero Waste Volunteer Programme. This is part of a national scheme funded by Zero Waste Scotland. Volunteer tasks include promoting composting, food waste reduction, peat free gardening and other aspects of waste reduction, through talking to neighbours, attending events and distributing leaflets and posters.
If you care about reducing waste, this is a great opportunity to make a difference. It is also a chance to meet like minded people and build up skills that might help with future jobs. RoWAN is currently looking for volunteers in Caithness.
