It is Earth Month at Starboard!
Each of us has the capabilities to protect the planet. Today we want to share some of our top tips, and what else we will and have been up to for Earth Month at Starboard & SOMWR.
The easiest action, which could also be seen as yoga infused if you bend down to pick up the waste! If you are out and about then bend down and pick up a couple of handfuls or bags full of waste that is in the natural environment. Our Plastic Offset Program Team are out there this Earth Month collecting an extra 10 tonnes. How much will you collect?
Clothes swap or repair with friends
Fashion turns around fast, meaning more and more goes to landfills every single second. In fact, Oxfam estimate that 11 million garments go to landfill every week! Furthermore, save huge amounts of CO2 and water being used by repairing or swapping clothes with friends. Swapping clothes is an easy way to revamp your wardrobe, whilst saving money and the planet. Starboard HQ is also hosting one on Earth day, yippie!
Plant native flowers to support wildlife
Let’s not forget about the little wizards who help our planet flourish! The insects need us to support their habitats and make the world a liveable place for them. Being at the bottom of the food chain they support everything we see that lives. Have a little google search about what is native in your area for plants and flowers. Then start spreading the seeds of life!
Let’s take time to learn about the environment
Take a seat, grab a plastic-free snack and get your learning cap on. On the Starboard Blue page, we have lots of documentaries our team at HQ have recommended. Additionally, have a look on your Netflix or Amazon Prime accounts for any documentaries that focus on our planet. As always, share what you learn with others. The Starboard Blue team are learning all about Climate Justice this month and is developing this area within our workings.
Get outside and appreciate nature with Starboard & SOMWR this Earth Month.
Finally, the reason Starboard is here is to enjoy nature. Hop onto your SUP, Wing or Windsurf and revel in everything nature has to offer. Tell the Earth you love her and breath in that fresh air!
