NeighbourhoodsCreating cleaner, greener spaces 3 things you can do today Re-route one journey. Pick a car journey you take regularly and try walking, cycling or taking public transport instead. Meet your neighbours. Discover something good going on near you and get involved. You'll share your skills, meet someone new and help create stronger a community. This is a good place to start. Plant something. Trees and plants are great for making our neighbourhoods more inviting, and they clean the air too. Silver birch trees are particularly good for reducing pollution levels. NASA did a study into great ways to clean the air and revealed English ivy, philodendrons, spider plants and golden pothos are great options for growing at home. Go a bit further - run your own campaign. Home Do something Top tips Blog Ideas bank Come Plastic Fishing with us Neighbourhoods Stem the wave of litter in Brighton and Hove Oh we do like to be beside the seaside... so long as we're not decked out next to a pile of old crisp packets and drinks bottles. 8 out of 10 people in Brighton and Hove are fed up with the amount of litter on the streets, and it doesn't stop at our streets. As we've discovered with the #FFSLDN campaign to stem the flow of litter to the Thames, so much of the litter dropped on the street ends up in storm drains, rivers and you guessed it, the sea. 35% of fish caught off the British coast have plastic in their gut, and 80% of the ocean plastic comes from the land. Thankfully there is some good news. Brighton and Hove City Council have taken the reins on this issue and together we've created the #StreetsAhead campaign which will be swimming its way through the streets of Brighton and Hove to remind people to take their litter home. Get involved From the 30th of November keep your eye out for a wave of colourful installations, stunts and reminders to bin litter in Brighton and Hove’s city centre. Here's what's going on: Visit the giant fish made out of litter opposite the Theatre Royal Brighton between the 30th of November - 11th of January and share your pictures with #StreetsAhead. Spot the three grates with #StreetsAhead grate art around the North Laine. If you smoke, vote with your butt and use the new bright yellow voting ashtrays which have popped up all over town. If you see litter on the ground like a newspaper or plastic bottle, put it in a nearby bin. You might just inspire others!
