At Pure Shave, we’re always looking for new ways to reduce our carbon footprint and protect our environment from waste. We may be just one business, but we understand the importance of accountability and future-proofing our planet. So, for this week’s blog, we wanted to highlight some of the fantastic work being done throughout the UK by charities and not-for-profit organisations.
Here are just a few of the groups that are striving to make our world a better place…
One of the UK’s most well-known charities, and one which will potentially shape the future of our countries’ green spaces, the Woodland Trust fights tirelessly for the environment. Protecting trees, woods and the wildlife that inhabit them, this charity does fantastic work throughout the length and breadth of the UK. If you can only support one charity in 2020, we’d highly recommend choosing the Woodland Trust.
Marine Conservation Society
When it comes to the preservation and championing of Britain’s coastline, you can’t get much better than the Marine Conservation Society. Their main focus is on reducing the amount of microplastics that make their way into our oceans (something close to our hearts here at Pure Shave), but are also campaigning to protect the UK’s threatened shark populations and the dwindling fields of underwater seagrass. We look forward to supporting the Marine Conservation Society with future sales.
Any charity that strives to help our oceans as A-OK with us here at Pure Shave, and Plastic Oceans do some fantastic work. With the goal of turning around the plastic-crisis within one generation, the charity spends a lot of their efforts educating children by partnering with schools. Their documentary, A Plastic Ocean was heralded by Sir David Attenborough as “one of the most important films of our time”.
Friends Of The Earth
Friends Of The Earth are a phenomenal charity that champions a range of campaigns to help make the future of the UK better for all its inhabitants. The issues they target are wide-ranging and, uniquely, include broad topics such as trade deals and climate change, alongside more specific projects. One of these targetted campaigns is the “The Bee Cause” which gives helpful advice on how every home can support the UK’s dwindling bee population.
We know that during these uncertain times, many charities will be struggling with reduced donations, so we urge those who have a few pounds to spare a month to reach deep and help to keep these fantastic organisations going.
