Show Highlights November 2nd 2017

On this week’s show we share a round up of our activities from the weekend when we travelled to Bude to meet Wayne Dixon and Koda who are litter picking the whole of the UK and while we were there we discovered people from all walks of life who are getting involved in beach clean ups to rid the beaches of plastics.

We feature interviews with Wayne Dixon and Pete Cooper, founder of the Crackington Crew who share their experiences with us and shine the spotlight on 2 minute beach cleans.

We talk about the fantastic EdFest SouthWest Festival held at Element School in Paignton which brought together children, parents, teachers and a whole host of organisations (including Community Seagrass Initiative) to celebrate our natural world.

We bring you news of Debbie Harry, aka Blondie and her new campaign entitled #BEEConnected to raise awareness of the decline in the bee population by promoting organisations dedicated to conserving and improving the health of pollinators through education, consumer empowerment and political activation.

We shine the light on a new campaign from 10:10 which demonstrates how councils can save money by switching to LED lights for the area’s streetlamps.

We bring you reflections from our friends at Pocket Guru and Rise Like Air, who create blogs and thought pieces to help you reflect on what matters to you.

And finally we bring you news of a partnership between Ecosia and Trump’s Forest which will lead to the planting of many more trees worldwide.
