Biodiversity is not ‘cute’

This week, the UN Secretary General made a moving speech that detailed the hell we’re heading for (transcriptvideo summary).

Humanity is waging war on nature,’ he said, ‘This is suicidal.

Indeed, with a shiny new contract awarded to drill the world’s largest oasis, ‘global soils’ in serious peril from agricultural harassment, once-in-a-lifetime superfloods becoming a regular thing, and new links between air pollution and Alzheimer’s, things are looking bleak.​ Not to mention multiple governments sidelining our species’ survival as they launch their Covid-19 recovery plans.

Oh, and here in the UK, we can look forward to a ‘major crackdown’ on our protest rights in the new year.

But despite such existential horrors, this team is trying to celebrate the positives: loggers and eco-warriors teamed up to save a rainforest in Canada; ‘rebirding’ is a thing people care about; the climate crisis might not be as divisive as politicians make out; and there’s a new US President waiting in the wings who’s not a climate denier!

NOT YET RECYCLED?

If you're like us, then you will be fed up with buying products from the supermarket with those dreaded words 'not yet recycled' on the packaging.

Our rebels came up with a great idea and we want you to join us! Please save this 'not yet recycled' packaging and bring it to us (maybe collect it in a separate box next to your normal recycling💡).

There will be a drop off point at every Local Group Meeting.

Watch this space for what we are going to do with it! Be assured it will be fun and it'll relieve any guilt you might have, now that you don't have to throw it away.
