iDots for Brownies

As part of our Midlands Guides iDot activity pack, we learnt about recycling and how crushing our recycling before putting it in the correct recycling bin, helps it to take up less space (so reduces the carbon footprint for transporting it) but also means that if it were to fall off the rubbish truck and an animal found it they wouldn’t be able to get stuck inside it.
Since we were learning about litter we also did a Litter Pick with our Brownies group to help keep the environment clean and remove and rubbish that could be dangerous to wildlife.

We gathered unwanted wooden pallets from neighbours that were throwing them away after doing gardens works. After a little bit of DIY we turned them into two planters for our garden to plant our own veggies.

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!
