Happy Earth Day… What are you doing?

Each year, 22nd April is classed as ‘Earth Day‘! 🌍

Basically, Earth Day is to encourage everyone to take action on the environment and climate change. This affects everyone and we can all do our part in different ways. Being more eco-friendly in our purchasing and choosing alternatives to plastics and harsh chemicals. Thinking about what we do with our litter – recycling or reducing where possible. Considering the impact of our food and growing our own produce or buying locally, seasonally and loose products. Sharing leftover food or letting others have our unwanted items on platforms such as Olio and so much more!
