  • Consider regular plastic clean-up days from waterways – make it Practical & Social,
  • Plant trees after liaising with your local council – who will have a program for volunteers,
  • Reduce your own and your club’s carbon footprint – eg remove plastics (plates, cutlery, straws) from your catering, coordinate transport, recycle all waste etc.,
  • Consider personal initiatives to reduce emissions - use of energy efficient lighting, recycling, composting, solar panels & batteries, use of an electric bicycle for local transport.
  • Consider an electric vehicle as the next car you buy, and advocate for electric recharging station in your area.
