As a business, it can be difficult to know what you can do to support Earth Day. So to help you take positive action, I have put together a list of resources, advice and tips to support Cardiff’s transition to a greener economy.
Taking place on 22 April, Earth Day has been celebrated around the World since 1970 and raises awareness of the need to protect the environment.
Continuing the same theme from 2022, the theme for Earth Day 2023 is ‘Invest in Our Planet.’
We’ve been working on making sustainable changes to our office to help minimise our impact on the environment. From recycling new items, promoting active travel and taking on a litter pick, these are the 8 changes we’ve made this year:
Businesses in Cardiff city centre are already doing some great things to help the environment. Here are a few initiatives that you may not have heard about:
Cotswold Outdoors – Recycle my Gear
Drop off clothing, belts, towels or shoes at the recycling bin in the Cardiff Cotswold Outdoors store and SOEX, the largest clothing re-wear and recycle company in the world, will collect. All clothing is sorted by hand into one of 450 grades and categorised according to the next best use: reuse or recycle. Find out more about the initiative here: Recycle My Gear
Yellow TSE is a plastic-free, zero-waste department store which provides a paperless shopping experience. Based in the Morgan Quarter, the not-for-profit social enterprise is “centred around the planet and people” and offers a self-checkout app that allows you to scan, weigh, and pay for your shopping.
Sports Direct – Save Bumblebees
In partnership with the Bumblebee Conservation Trust, Sports Direct have created limited edition bee mugs and bags. When purchased in store, you’ll receive a free educational booklet and wildflower seed, a blend of Oxeye Daisies and Poppies, which bumblebees love and will need to pollinate this summer. Find out more here.
LUSH Spa Cardiff
LUSH is a British high street brand dedicated to providing environmentally friendly, handmade products using ethically sourced ingredients. But did you know that they offer workshops in their Cardiff store? From learning about the ingredients used to creating your own self-care routine, LUSH Spa Cardiff host educational sessions open to all, from schools and community groups to workplaces. Please email email@example.com to find out more.
Share your sustainability wins with us by tagging us on social media and using the hashtag #EarthDay2023.
We would also love to hear if you plan to implement any of these changes or if you have any suggestions or case studies that you’d like us to share with other businesses. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
