Three simple ways to make a positive impact on the environment

Three simple ways to make a positive impact on the environment

There are so many events and initiatives in July that focus on cleaning up and looking after the environment,that it’s hard not to be inspired to get involved in some shape or form.

The whole of July celebrates being ‘Plastic Free’, encouraging us to refuse single-use plastics in July (and hopefully beyond!).

The first week of July is Clean Beaches Week. Did you know, we now have 77 Blue Flag beaches in England? Learn how you can help to maintain these beautiful spaces and get involved with the National Trust’s campaign to make a #PromiseForNature here.

The Great British Spring Clean, which took place between 28th May and 13th June helped to create over a million miles of cleaner and greener spaces throughout the UK. We got involved on a recent trip to the glorious Lake District.

Litter-picking has more benefits than you might think. It’s an excellent excuse to get outside, be active, and connect with nature. In doing so, you’ll be doing something positive for the greater good, which will leave you feeling great! Why not give it a try with your friends, family, or members of your local community? There’s plenty of advice to help you get started and guidance on how to stay safe while doing so on the Keep Britain Tidy site.

So, plenty to keep us busy this month:

• Say no to single-use plastics in July. A simple way to do this is to keep a reusable shopper bag in your car or handbag so you always have it to hand.

• Make a #PromiseForNature. Whether it’s helping to create homes and healthy habitats for wildlife, helping bees and butterflies to thrive, helping keep our seas/rivers clean for wildlife and people, or reducing food miles/waste/packaging, how will you get involved?

• Become a #LitterHero. You can even buy your own litter-picking kit to ensure you’re safely equipped on your quest to help tidy up!
