We’re pledging, why don’t you?
3 pledges you can make this Earth Day
We are on a mission to help reduce plastic from our environment and that’s why we’ve exclusively partnered with weDo/ professionals and Plastic Bank on their pledge – from April 22nd 2021 for 30 days, Regis will match the weDo/ contribution to Plastic Bank. For every 1 weDo/ bottle sold online at Regis, 16 items of plastic rubbish will be collected and removed from our environment and oceans! The UK goal is to remove 5 million plastics from the environment by the end of May.
weDo/ believes that by working together we can make a difference, and Earth Day is the perfect day to make some small changes, which will make a big impact on the environment. So we wanted to let people know about our pledge partnership, but also encourage others to do their bit! Below you’ll find some easy, eco-friendly pledges that everyone can include in their daily routine.
What is Earth Day?
Earth Day is on the 22nd April this year and is widely recognised as a day of action to fight for a better, healthier environment to save our planet.
How you can make a difference on Earth Day (and every other day too!)
When it comes to the environment, we all need to do our bit to make a positive impact. The little things are what makes a big difference in the long run. Here are just a few ideas of how you can start to make a change:
1. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
This is one of the easiest, yet most effective, ways to make a positive change for the environment. Look out for products where the packaging is made out of recycled material, that can be recycled again. Have a separate recycling bin next to your normal bin to make it as quick and easy as possible.
2. Try going veggie once a week
Studies suggest that if everyone moved to a more plant-based diet, greenhouse gas emissions could be reduced by up to 52%1. Try cutting down on meat once a week and giving plant-based meals a go (we could all do with some more veggies in our diet!)
3. Lower your carbon footprint
Could you walk to your local shop instead of using the car? Could you cycle to see your friends in the park rather than get the bus? This one is all about getting outside and enjoying the fresh air! Reducing your use of cars and buses means less greenhouse gasses which is great for the environment – and good for you too!
