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.

We teamed up with the artists behind Dirty Beach to create the UK’s first ever rural litter shop as part of the #LoveYourForest campaign. The ‘CON-venience store’ stocked with litter from yesteryear, revealing the quantity and permanence of litter that's dropped in the forest. This museum of waste had an array of discarded picnic plastics and ‘forest fresh’ trash. There was a number of vintage and unusual findings including decades old crisp packets, 40 year old drinks bottles with cork stoppers, old pull-ring drinks cans and ONE old croc — beware, there might be another one still lurking in the wood!
