Actions for out 'n' about

Helping wildlife when you're out 'n' about!

Taking action for nature at home is not the only way you can help British wildlife thrive. There are plenty actions you can do when you’re out ‘n’ about whether you’re out shopping, going for a walk, travelling, volunteering or out enjoying some nice food with friends or family.

Going about your daily life you’ll be surprised at just how many ways you can help protect nature and wildlife across the county whilst simultaneously benefiting your physical and mental health.  See below for just some of those ideas.

Tips for when your out 'n' about!

By doing a little preparation before you leave the house you can make all the difference for wildlife and the environment. 

Preparation power

It is estimated that round 7 million coffee cups are used in the UK everyday! Also throughout the country we use 7.7 billion plastic bottler per year that's around 117 plastic bottles per person per year! The majority of these items are not recycled. So what can be done about it? Well, one super simple change you can make to your everyday life to help wildlife and the environment is to adopt reusable receptacles and ditch those silly single use water bottles and coffee cups.
If you've already treated yourself to a coffee cup and bottle then happy days! Why not go one further and bring cutlery and a straw with you whether you go. Taking your plastic free lunch in a reusable bag means you have a shopping bag ready to go should you need to make a pit stop at the shops.

Eating power

Taking a lunch with you when you head out is one great way to avoid the pesky plastic of those meal deals! 
If you're heading out to a restaurant this evening why not ask them if they have a vegan menu to help cut down on your carbon footprint. Additionally, you might source a restaurant that is sustainable.
