Giving back to Mother Nature

In the last year there has been an awful lot of upheaval and uncertainty. People’s lives have been altered immeasurably. Some have lost loved ones, some their livelihoods. For that reason, the environment understandably hasn’t been at the forefront of people’s minds.

But, as we head into Spring and out of lockdown, it seems like the perfect time to shine some dappled light on the world around us.

Since Lockdown 1.0 in 2020, families have been spending huge amounts of time outdoors, exploring their local area and embracing open spaces. Getting outside has been absolutely integral to us not going completely insane. Now it’s time to give back to Mother Nature a little bit.

No one needs more doom and gloom in their lives at the moment, so we’re not going to focus on frightening figures or scary statistics – instead we’re going to give you some easy-peasy eco activities that you and your children can try that will hopefully benefit both you, and the environment.

In 2019 we curated Focus on their Future, a month of environmentally-focussed events to coincide with Plastic-free July. We made eco-cleaning products, bee hotels, eco-bricks and discussed all things motherhood and the environment. We’ll be revisiting some of those activities here and adding lots of new ones to keep your little ones inspired and engaged during the Easter holidays and beyond.
