Plant a tree or shrub

The best planting times are between October and April, but avoid planting in waterlogged soil. If you don’t have a garden, no fear, you can plant trees and shrubs in containers, at any time of the year!

Say no to plastic straws and stirrers

In England, it is estimated that we used 4.7 billion plastic straws and 316 million plastic stirrers every year, before the ban came in to action! Across the world most countries use a variety of single use plastics. We can help reduce the amount by reducing the demand.

Every time you’re offered a plastic straw or stirrer with your drink, say no. It won’t stop plastic production, but it can certainly help reduce it. #iDot #SingleUsePlastic #Quarantine #Isolation #PlasticReduction

Create your very own butterfly feeder

You can use almost anything as a platform for your butterfly feeder, from a plastic or paper plate, to an upturned terracotta pot.
Hang them from a tree or place on the floor and fill with nectar, fruit pieces or flowers.
