Take Action to be Earth-Friendly!
There are three indisputable facts in today’s consumer-led, pollutive, climate-obliterating world:
We all need to use less, and conserve more. This gets easier to do once we make that start.
Our children’s future hangs by a thread, thanks to the catastrophic, non-eco-friendly practices humans keep now that are killing the planet future generations will inhabit.
It is imperative that we ACT FAST NOW, and make immediate, dramatic lifestyle changes that focus on reducing environmental impact, if our world has any chance at all of regenerating and being able to support in years to come all forms of life on Earth.
It is the urgent purpose of this website to galvanise the influential world of Early Years Childcare and beyond and make it a force for good, igniting a commitment to reduce the carbon footprint of all Nursery Groups, Childcare and Nursery Providers and of every individual – be it teacher, parent or child – and providing an endless wealth of information and guidance which can be shared across the globe.
Here’s how the site works!

The UK produces a whopping 5.2 million tonnes of plastic each year and to this the Nursery sector contributes a great deal. Here’s what Nurseries and Parents can do to address this…
Make resource choices that really consider the world we have inherited. Choose your food wisely and don’t select plastic! Almost all the plastic you have ever used or owned is still somewhere on this planet. Multiply that amount by the total population and you have an idea of the extent of the problem. What’s more, every year, 8 million metric tons of plastic end up in our oceans. That's equivalent to five grocery bags filled with plastic for every foot of coastline in the world!
