WHO WE ARE
Wild Earth Movement is an environmental not -for-profit organisation with a strong focus on waste and plastic pollution. We are based in the West Midlands, UK.
We are community led, and by that we mean that, what people want, we try to deliver. We host all sorts of events, sessions, workshops and activities around the West Midlands and beyond.
From community litter picking events to kids birthday parties, we really want to make it our mission to include everybody we can, in some way or another. We are passionate about equality and diversity and want to break down whatever barriers stand in the way of people being able to connect with nature and our planet.
Each year, in December, we host a plastic free, sustainable market that supports smaller businesses. This event takes place in the heart of Stourbridge, attracting over 1000 visitors.
If you're interested in learning more, please come along to one of our upcoming events, connect with us on social media or contact Hannah the founder of Wild Earth Movement using the contact page.
We rely on bookings, fundraising events and grants to keep this movement moving so please do support us by sharing our information, joining us for a workshop, fundraising for us, following us on social media or letting us know if your workplace offer funding opportunities.

Meet The Team
Lover of the ocean, animals, up cycling and really old things! You'll find Hannah at most of our sessions, pop ups and workshops gushing over flowers, tin cans or pebbles. She's a workaholic, sleeps, eats and dreams all things Wild Earth Movement. Ever since she was little she's wanted to be a marine biologist! She's easily recognisable by her vast array of cool recycled leggings. AKA (by some) as "Lady Earth".
Becky is patient, calm and great with little ones. She has a degree in early years and loves to be outdoors. She's always at the beach or in the woods teaching her family about looking after the planet. She works many of our pop up weekend events and is a real gem in the WEM team.
"My names Glenn I'm the old man of the organisation!
It's the outdoor life for me. I love birdwatching and sitting out in the fresh air. My tasks at WEM are to do all the dirty jobs like washing up, glueing, cutting out shapes - I'm a very busy man!"
Lily is our face painting, eco queen! She's super smiley, creative and could upcycle a bin bag if you gave her the chance.
She likes yoga, swimming and is super adventurous. She helps out at most events and is a real asset to the team.
Fan of recycling, charity shops, crafting and youth work. Izi loves to raise awareness of our carbon footprint to future generations including her own Earth tots. Izi is Wild Earth Movements number one fan, she is so enthusiastic & hard working. She's full of ideas - sensible ones! She'll be found supporting many WEM events and has a carbon literacy qualification.
Emma is an Earth loving mom of (nearly) 4, who tries to teach her kids the value of looking after the planet. She usually has some hacks on how to sell a second hand item to a child. She loves tree hugging, moon bathing and grounding herself in nature. Often seen at events with at least one of her own children in tow, she also volunteers at kids eco crafts days and home ed classes. Not the best WEM face painter, but what she lacks in skill she makes up for in enthusiasm!
We want more schools to be including eco education either as part of their curriculum, enrichment time, through lunchtime or after-school clubs.
By the end of 2023 we want a wider reach geographically expanding into areas we don't currently engage in.
We want to be the go-to organisation when planning an event or party and want something thats both fun and educational.
We hope to have access to further funding to be able to deliver bigger environmental projects.
Throughout Summer 2023 we want to deliver eco awareness projects around the UK.
