Watch as flowers start bursting into life!

All around you, signs of spring are starting to appear, may it be in your garden, a window flower box or even on your daily walk.

A fun activity for the kids is to get them out in the garden to take pictures of the different flowers they see. When they’re done, grab the nearest gardening book or hop on to the computer and find out which ones they have found.

You can also have a look and see which insects feed from them!

Avoid cutting back hedges and trees in your garden

Birds are nesting and garden hedges not only provide the perfect protection from predators, they also provide vital food sources.

In the UK, its an illegal offence to disturb a nesting site, so, from March through to the end of July, make sure you hold off on trimming back your garden foliage.

Use both sides of the paper

Paper is one of the largest polluters, taking 10 litres of water to produce a single sheet of A4!

Paper production is also one of the largest contributors towards deforestation. Producing just 1 kilo of paper, requires 2-3 times its weight in trees.

Go for a Nature Walk

The perfect cure to Sunday boredom, is to wrap up warm, don your muddiest wellies and get out of the house for a nature walk.
Whilst out walking, listen carefully to the different sounds around you. From the rustle of the trees, to the birds singing and soaring, high in the sky.

How many flowers, trees and animals can you identify?
Don’t forget your social distancing too.

Use recycled paper

Paper usage across Europe, Japan and the USA is monumental, the average person uses between 250-300 kilos every year. That’s almost as heavy as 45 bowling balls!

For each tonne of recycled paper used, we can save 17 trees, 26,500 litres of water and 4,000kw of energy.

It’s a no-brainer; swap to recycled paper. The LIVE counter below, shows the amount of paper produced so far this year!
