#7DaysForEarth for Earth Day, Thursday 22nd April 2021

We are all about protecting our outdoor playgrounds, and we want to help as many people as possible to do the same so we can keep enjoying our hills and mountains long into the future.

 

This Earth Day, we’ve teamed up with GB Snowsport to look at the small changes we can all make to our daily habits that can reap big benefits for the planet. We’ve devised our #7DaysForEarth challenges to help you make a difference: 7 challenges over 7 days. The GB Snowsport athletes have been busy completing their challenges in celebration of Earth Day, so now we want to see your attempts.

 

The #7DaysForEarth challenges are:

  • Monday 19th April: Use less water. Run the tap for less time, use your cold tea to water the plants or take a speedy shower.
  • Tuesday 20th April: Repair something to give it a new life. Sew up a hole in an old jumper, fix a bit of furniture or household item, or drop off your down jacket to your nearest Snow+Rock store to be patched up with our Repair & Care service.
  • Wednesday 21st April: Plant something green. Plant a tree, plant or flower in your garden, or in a pot if you don’t have a garden.
  • Thursday 22nd April: Swap the car for human power. Go on bike or foot/scooter/roller skates to do one of your weekly errands e.g. the food shop.
  • Friday 23rd April: Make a plastic free meal. Try to make a meal only from ingredients you can buy unpackaged e.g. unwrapped fruit/veg from the supermarket or greengrocers, or dry ingredients from a local plastic free shop. Bonus point for making it vegetarian or vegan!
  • Saturday 24th April: Litter pick. Pick up and bin a piece of litter on your daily walk/run/bike/rollerblading/exercise.
  • Sunday 25th April: Recycle or Re-purpose. If something is beyond repair, make sure you dispose of it in the most responsible way possible or, even better, find a new use for it – there are plenty or creative re-purposing ideas for household items online!

Find out about our mission to change the fabric of outdoor retailing

For us, the outdoors is everything. It’s work, it’s play, it’s in our DNA. Put simply, we’d be lost without it. That’s why we want to do everything we can to look after it for generations to come. How? By minimising our impact on the environment, actively protecting the places we love, and helping everyone to enjoy the outdoors in a sustainable way. We’re working towards a more circular economy that’s better for the great outdoors and everyone who enjoys exploring it, too. Read more on our sister company Cotswold Outdoor’s website here.

 

Want more time with your kit and to save the planet? Who doesn’t? Find out how you can give your favourite outdoor kit a second life if it’s past it’s best with our Repair & Care service here.

 

If your kit is beyond repair then the best thing you can do for the planet is to dispose of it in the most responsible way possible. Find out more about our Recycle My Gear service which allows you to part with your old outdoor kit without fear of it ending up in the landfill.
