What We Do
Gwyrddio Penarth Greening – GPG – is a group of local volunteers working towards improving the environment and building a sustainable community in Penarth.
GPG has developed lots of projects over the last 10 years including Shop Penarth, Plastic Free Penarth, Access Penarth, planted an orchard in Cosmeston and organised lots of local events promoting sustainability.
In 2020 we want to engage with more people in the local community to develop local solutions to our environmental & climate challenges

These projects are:
1. A Green Directory for Penarth
