#NationalTreeWeek has begun!
This @TheTreeCouncil event is about celebrating trees and all that they do for our planet, from storing carbon, giving life to wildlife, and stabilising our soils.
Studies show that being around trees does wonders for our #wellbeing, too.🌳
We're delighted to have won the @PRCA_HQ #PRCAPublicAffairsAwards for our planning campaign! 🏆

Happy #BuyNothingDay! Today's all about enjoying ourselves without spending.

Today is #WorldKindnessDay, an event created by @RAKFoundation to encourage acts of kindness today, and every day.
Kindness between people is a win-win, and this year in particular we'd like to encourage kindness to our planet too.
