Earth Matters - 'Reduce Waste'



Earth Matters by Planet & People

Let's LOVE the Earth! Dear Planet People


Learn - Let’s reduce our waste!

As we put the finishing touches to February’s Planet Action Kit, we are excited to let you know

that next month’s theme will be 'Reduce Waste'. This is absolutely crucial in our journey towards living more lightly. Consumerism and our attitude to ‘things’ needs to change and next month’s box is full of ideas and tips for how to turn old waste into something new.


Our Planet Action Kit also provides an activity to reflect on how much waste you and your household are producing and the challenge is to produce less over the course of February. Kids love making things and how much better if you don’t have to spend any money on the equipment and instead you can use things in your home which would otherwise go to landfill!

Win, win.

Observe - Let’s see what to look out for in February!

There is plenty to see in February. Even if it looks too cold outside, there is always something new to look out for. Being outside is good for you whatever the weather! Here are some ideas ofthings you might see at this time of year:



  • Frosty mornings

  • Signs of spring: bulbs, snowdrops, primroses

  • The first bumblebees of the season

  • Longer daylight hours

  • Beautiful sunrises and sunsets

February is a great month for putting food out for the birds as supplies are scarce towards the end of the winter. It’s also fun to keep a list of species that have visited your feeders.
