As you will know, this week, 21 – 27 March is Climate Week. Around the country thousands of events and activities, highlighting the positive steps being taken to help combat climate change, are being planned by organisations from every sector for the UK’s first Climate Week.
Backed by every part of society – from the Prime Minister to Paul McCartney, the NHS to the National Trust, Girlguiding UK to the CBI, the Big Lottery Fund to the National Association of Head Teachers, Climate Week is a chance for everyone to make changes, whether small or large that can have a positive long term effect on our environment.
Climate Week is sponsored by a Headline Partner – Tesco – and four Supporting Partners – Aviva, EDF Energy, Kelloggs and RBS.
With individuals pledging to reduce their energy consumption by switching off lights, walking to work and minimising their food waste there are lots of things that we can all do.
Now as the Queen of Easy Green, I am obviously all for easy eco ways in which we can all make a change, not only to our environment, but to our own pockets too. It is a subject I am very passionate about and hope through my own products and this site, I can help people make a positive change to their own lives. However, sometimes I feel that the green message can come across as being a little preachy and off-putting to some people, and I’m not the only one. I’ve found this great clip from David Mitchell, from ‘Peep Show’ fame, which I really think brings a little sense of humour to the whole subject, I hope you like it too.
Once you finished watching it, to find out more about Climate Week go to www.climateweek.com, email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone on 020 3397 2601 and please do get involved.
With your small changes it may not feel like you’re making any difference at all, but you are, it’s like that old wives tale of the visitor, the village and the milk fountain, if we all work together and do our bit something fantastic will happen, if we rely on someone else to do it instead of us, nothing will change.
Let me know what you think, I’d love to hear your feedback.
