Recycle Devon has teamed up with Devon’s Top Attractions, Stagecoach South West, Great Western Railway, Devon Climate Emergency (DCE) and Clean Devon to share tips on how to enjoy a day out, the green way.
Top tips include reusing instead of using single use items, visiting local attractions and places, using sustainable transport and avoiding littering.
Residents can win 1 of 5 Big Green Days Out by pledging to adopt these greener habits on days out:
The prizes consist of a Reusable/Eco Picnic Set, Reusable Water Bottles, Devon’s Top Attractions entry tickets, Stagecoach tickets and Rail tickets. Each pledge entry will be added to a prize draw, to be drawn on August 7 2023.
The Big Green Day Out supports the need to conserve resources and save energy to help combat climate change.
In 2019 Devon County Council, Torbay and Devon’s District Councils declared a Climate Emergency. As a result, Devon County Council has committed to facilitating the reduction of Devon’s carbon emissions to net-zero by 2050 at the latest.
Choosing greener days out is something we can all do to combat climate change. It means we can have a great day out whilst also protecting our environment and natural habitats. It’s a win/win for everyone.
