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.

Until recently that was seen as almost inevitable, but public attitudes have changed - and so have the recycling possibilities. In 2017 Hubbub created a unique collaboration of 36 businesses, retailers and offices who became the first to pilot a campaign encouraging the recycling of disposable coffee cups in public spaces and workspaces - the Square Mile Challenge campaign. In it's first year the Square Mile Challenge successfully recycled four million cups in the City of London. A free guide for businesses Using our learnings from the Square Mile Challenge, we've created a free 'how to' guide for disposable paper and coffee cup recycling, aimed at businesses that want to recycle on-site: from large offices to restaurants and shops. If you'd like further support to ensure your campaign is introduced to your community effectively, scroll down for our communications pack.
