The Final Countdown
It’s seven days to go until we reach Earth Day and the eight events we have lined up around the UK! We are very excited to be hosting some of the millions of events taking place across the world on the 22nd of April. If you haven’t already seen what events we’re hosting yet, head over to our events page on the website or on Facebook to see if there is an event near you. If one of ours isn’t near enough, set up your own event and register it with the Earth Day Network! So far, we’ve been really pleased with the reception of our events, and the people who have reached out to us to get involved, and we can’t wait to meet everyone at each location! Thank you to our friends and family who have agreed to host some of the events we can’t reach ourselves, and thank you to everyone who has jumped on board to help promote them, including our friends Glasgow Schools Rowing Club, Clydesdale Amateur Rowing Club and the fantastic parents of the children getting involved who will be helping to clear the Clyde riverbank alongside those of you who join us in Glasgow Green. A lot has to be said for the people that have helped us to spread the word about these events and issues, but we also couldn’t live without the other organisations like the Cambridge Green Party that has been sharing our event with their own supporters.
This week our Green8eam member Earth Day t-shirts arrived! At each of our events one or two friendly faces will be wearing these t-shirts and helping to guide you on your way for the litter picks! We will also be hosting a RAFFLE at each event for some of you lovely Green18er’s to have the chance to win your very own t-shirt and some other Earth-friendly goodies! All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning is turn up to one of our events and pass your email address on to our rosy-cheeked Green8eam member.
Please keep helping us promote the events on Facebook and elsewhere – it would put a huge smile on our faces to see a big group of keen bag-wielding litter pickers across the country. We will be posting with final information and advice for each event this week so stay tuned!
