Throughout June 2019 we've been learning how we can all be Green Guardians - helping to save the planet.

We've been sharing loads of different ideas about the small changes we can make to help make a difference. You can see some of them below.

Top Green Tips
  • Save Energy
    • Try and always turn lights off
    • Turn electronic devices completely off (rather than just on standby)
    • Put an extra jumper on rather than turning the heating on
    • Don't waste water by letting it run
    • Eat less meat
  • Get Outside - Being outside in nature is good for us, even if it's just walking down the road
    • Try and walk, scoot or cycle rather than jumping in the car
    • Try and find chances to get out and explore nature
    • Setup a bird box, feeder or bug hotel in your back garden
    • Plant some wild flower seeds in your garden or a big pot (see right)
  • Cut Down on Waste - Always think 'Reduce, Reuse, Recycle'
    • Cut down on single use plastics, especially in things like lunchboxes
    • Try and avoid throwing food away
    • Make good use of charity shops for toys and clothes
    • Make sure you are recycling everything that you can!
