International Compost Awareness Week (ICAW)

5th to 11th May 2019
As many gardeners know composting is a great way to turn food and garden waste back into plant food. It's also great for the environment adding nutrients to soil, reducing the need for chemical fertilisers, producing helpful bacteria that break down organic waste and cut greenhouse gas emissions from landfill sites.

Reducing Single-Use Plastics - #OneSmallThingMyNI

Unfortunately we’re all getting so used to seeing the terrible images of plastic pollution around the world, that we’re almost becoming immune to them. Even statistics that tell us how EVERYDAY approx 8 million tonnes of plastic finds its way into our oceans, have lost their ability to shock. That’s why we created #OneSmallThingMyNI to highlight some of the small everyday things you can do to reduce your use of plastic in the hope that together we can motivate and encourage others to reduce, reuse and recycle too.
