The Great Big Green Week is the UK’s biggest ever celebration of community action to tackle climate change and protect nature. And everyone’s invited.
Between 24th September and 2nd October this year, Great Big Green Week will unleash a wave of support for action to protect the planet. Tens of thousands of people in every corner of the country will celebrate the heartfelt, brave, everyday actions being taken to stand up for nature and fight climate change.
Come along to see us during the Great Big Green Week and discover ways to reduce waste, grow your own herbs and veggies, tips on building a wildlife garden and find out how some fantastic brands are finding ways to help our environment.
From Monday 26th September we will be showcasing our climate-neutral beauty and bodycare range from Lavera as well as talking plastic-free kitchen and bathroom products with Cheeky Panda, LoofCo, Eco-Egg, If You Care and Faith in Nature. We will be raising funds for the RSPB too.
Monday 26th September......Climate Neutral Beauty with Lavera
"It is our highest goal to protect nature - our living space and the source for all of our actions - sustainably and holistically. Even when extracting our raw materials, we pay attention to the highest (organic) quality and the most local origin possible. We are doing everything we can to reduce our energy consumption and are already getting 100% green electricity. At the same time, we are introducing sustainable packaging and have been actively involved in animal welfare for years." - Lavera
