Save Our Wild Isles was screened for all of our team members to learn about the relationship between business and nature.

Photography Competition

Charlotte’s photography competition has been a huge success. We love how enthusiastic the Haith’s community has been. We was overwhelmed by how many entries where submitted so we ended up choosing 3 winners!

School Colouring Competition Winner

Problems with Plastic

Keep remembering to bring in your reusable water bottles and to recycle, sorting your items into the correct bins.

You should be aware of The Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Filled with rubbish and microplastics, this is one garbage patch of many. Sadly, these microplastics make their way through the food chain – a fish may eat plankton which has microplastics inside them and then we enjoy our fish and chips, unaware that we are likely ingesting tiny microplastic particles.

We can only make a small difference, but it’s better than making no difference at all! If possible, have a look at things that you can do to eliminate plastic use. This could be buying fruit and veg loosely or bringing a reusable bag to the shop with you.

Until next month,

Julianne, Charlotte & Ed
