Thank you to our brilliant sponsors - it wouldn't happen without your!
We have a new decade and a whole wealth of not just knowledge, but acceptance, understanding, powerful activism and a desire to do something about the climate crisis we are in as we enter the twenty-twenties.
I think most of us can feel it, the need and desire to change. We can’t keep behaving like it doesn’t matter, or we don’t care. We have to stop being the bullies of the playground and start being the responsible, caring, sustainably-minded species we need to be.
We need to use resources in a way that means they can go on being reused and reused and reused, rather than used up and thrown away.
Without giving away too much at this stage, if you want to partner with us to make Zero Waste Week 2020 the biggest and best it has ever been (and it’s fab already), then please get in touch to talk about how you can be involved.
