Over 20 years ago in 1999, Scrap Club Kingston commissioned a songwriting project to bring about environmental awareness into the millennium. Their message was: reuse, reduce, recycle. Julia E K Thomas, professional singer and songwriter worked with children who came to Scrap Club to create art and music. Their brilliant lyrics for the songs were woven into four tracks recorded at a professional studio and was released. It even had a feature in Time Out Magazine.

The track ‘Make The Whole World Smile’ features 5 children singing and there were live performances including Glastonbury (picture), Kingston Green Fayre, Big Green Gathering and in a Brockwell Park festival .

 Scrap Club founder Des Kay known as Professor Kayoss also featured and promoted the project with Scrap Club founder Bernadette Vallely together with Art4Space’s founders Julie Norburn and Dani Lees-Smith.


The track ‘Enviro-mental’ won 1st place in Songlink’s ‘Eco-Pop’ category!

Everybody’s going Enviro-mental!
