Welcome to our September newsletter! On the blog last month, we talked about simple, low-cost ways to green up your home. From bringing the outdoors inside by filling your home with low-care plants, to using natural cleaning products. Check out our top tips here.
While there are plenty of ways to avoid plastic when you’re doing a grocery shop at the supermarket, it can be tricky to avoid piles of packaging when you’re purchasing goods online. We share some clever tips for doing a plastic free shop online here.
Do your bit for the planet on World Cleanup Day!
September 18th is World Cleanup Day, when people around the globe can unite to help rid our planet of trash – cleaning up litter and mismanaged waste from our beaches, rivers, forests, and streets.
World Cleanup Day harnesses the power of people around the world to achieve incredible things by joining together. Its beauty lies in cooperation and collaboration: building bridges between disparate communities, and including all levels of society – from citizens to business, to government. Here are five ways to get involved.
1 - Volunteer to join a clean-up
Check the Cleanup map and see if there’s an event near you. 180 countries are taking part this year with more than 50 million volunteers signing up for events around the globe.
2 - Organise your own team
Can’t find an event near you? Restrictions permitting, you may be able to organise your own clean-up event. Visit here to register. You can do it with your workplace, neighbours, family or friends.
3 - Donate to the cause
By making a much-needed donation you will join the big Let’s Do It World family and directly support work that protects our beautiful planet and builds up a new and sustainable world. No amount is too small, so visit here to find out more.
4 - Spread the world
Encourage your friends, family and colleagues to get involved through your social media platforms. Share your clean-up efforts and use the hashtag #worldcleanupday to encourage others to play their part too.
5 - Start small
Whether you pick up cigarettes, take three for the sea or pick up plastic on a walk around your neighbourhood, every action helps, no matter how small.
