Earth Day 2020

Did you know that we have celebrated Earth Day on 22nd April every year since 1970? I didn’t, that’s for sure.

Earth Day Network’s mission is to diversify, educate and activate the environmental movement worldwide. They work in over 190 countries, with 75,000 partners to achieve this. Take a look at the History of Earth Day here.

This year, for me, is going to be even more poignant than recent years as the affects of Covid-19 are still wreaking havoc on our planet. Some are blaming the way we treat the Earth, animals and each other as a source for the outbreak, others saying it’s a hoax, some blaming entirely bizarre ideas – whatever it is, something went very badly wrong and we now have the responsibility of fixing it.

However, it hasn’t all been doom and gloom. Have you seen the amazing pictures of the reduction in pollution that have been sent from some of the most overly populated cities in the world? That reduction MUST be having a positive affect on other things we cannot yet see.

 

Anyway, I digress. Earth Day is a brilliant way to share important topics, raise awareness and join in on their challenge (the World’s Largest Citizen Science Effort!). Volunteer, donate, organise an event – just get involved and have a read up on the wonderful work they do. https://www.earthday.org/

And…..to get you even more interested – keep an eye on our Facebook and Instagram pages for a sneaky special offer.

 

Key Worker Gift Bags

Key Worker Gift Bags

Would you like to say Thank You to one of the fantastic Key Workers that are continuing to work during the Covid-19 outbreak? There are so many people who are the back bone of our Country and the jobs they have are keeping things running, allowing us to eat and providing essential health care. These gifts are just a small way to let someone know that you appreciate what they are doing.

That person could be a teacher, a doctor, cleaner, supermarket worker or delivery driver – you can choose who you want the gift bag to go to. Or, you can make a donation towards the group I have chosen to support that week. Each week will be somewhere different, a hospital, school, care home or other. You are welcome to send forward your nominations.
