You can use this map to find, connect and be inspired by sustainable groups and organisations across Dorset, however please note in some cases the pin shown on the Sustainable Dorset map will indicate the approximate area where an organisation is active, but not necessarily physically located, as a number of the organisations listed on this site use a PO Box, C/O or Registered Address. Please do not make a special trip to visit a place without checking this out or dropping them an email first.
