A project in North Wales is aiming to encourage town councils to adopt more green measures.

The Strong Roots initiative is working alongside authorities in the region to persuade people to monitor their use of ink cartridges and save energy in other ways, including car sharing, reports DPWWest.

Rhodri Thomas, research development officer for Sustain Wales, which is supporting the scheme, told the news provider: "We want town and community councils to adopt sustainable development and actively support others in the community who are doing things."

Mr Thomas remarked that training has been delivered to 73 councillors from around 50 different councils at 14 training sessions throughout Wales.

A number of ink recycling initiatives have also been organised in the US, including Recyclemania, with more than 600 schools, colleges and universities taking part.

The programme began on March 31st and will last for eight weeks, with schools competing to decrease the amount of waste they send to landfill.
