Earth Day 2021
This year marks 50 years since Earth Day first began! It takes place every year on 22 April, and it's an opportunity for people right across the globe to come together not only to celebrate the world and to highlight how important it is to protect our precious planet.
This year's theme is 'restore our Earth', which focuses on natural processes, green technologies and new ways to restore the world's ecosystems.
We've been thinking about our impact on the climate following Earth Day last week. Over the years, we've been striving towards a zero-carbon business model and continually reviewing our procedures to strive towards a more sustainable business.
We've listed some ways we're working towards this and shared some ideas of how you might join in.
