 Grow  Protect

Here are some ways you can help:

Have a small family

More than 2 children per woman leads to population growth…. which cannot be sustained by nature.

Lower the impact of your baby

Simple decisions to use non-disposable nappies, breastfeed and avoid wet wipes can lower the environmental impact of your baby and save you money.

 
 
 
 

Explore local wild areas

Connecting children to nature is good for their health and happiness and means they are more likely to care about their surroundings in the future.

Make sure playing places are pesticide free

Find out what chemicals are used on local estates, play areas, playing fields and schools. Keep your garden free from weed killers and other pesticides - it’s safer for people and better for wildlife!

 
 
 
 

Instil a lifelong love of nature

Encourage your school to get kids out of the classroom and into nature. Invite local wildlife experts to speak to school children, and join or set up a nature club.

Have a staycation

Save money and reduce your environmental footprint by taking family holidays in Cornwall; explore local places and enjoying getting out into nature.

 
 
 
 

Celebrate sustainably

Reduce the impact of birthday parties and celebrations by gifting experiences rather than objects. Never release balloons as they harm wildlife; plant a tree or blow bubbles instead.

Buy less!

It sounds obvious, but one of the best ways to help nature is simply by consuming less….kids don’t need the latest clothes, toys or gadgets so buy less, choose well and make it last! Remember - most things can be bought second-hand.
