Earth day is April 22nd, and we’ve created a nifty little brain-teaser to encourage businesses to remember their carbon footprint.
Can you spot the foot amongst the leaves below?
Found the foot but wondering what this Earth Day business is all about?
Earth Day, run by the Earth Day Network, aims to raise awareness about climate change and sustainable development through a variety of campaigns and activities. The day was held for the first time in 1970 and is considered to have launched the modern environmental movement. On last year’s Earth Day, the historic Paris Accord was signed. This year, the network hopes to build on that momentum.
2017’s Earth Day campaign aims to achieve global environmental literacy by 2020, the aim being that – through policy development and engagement – all future students will graduate as environmentally aware citizens.

"Everything was explained clearly by the representative, Mark Weeks, and it made the renewal of our utility supplier painless. Prices quoted were competitive and we were able to secure a better price than expected. The process was quick and efficiently dealt with.

"Lorraine, the agent who attended to me, was extremely efficient and professional. The quotations obtained were very competitive and presented in an easily understandable format. All queries were attended to and replies forthcoming speedily. As a representative of the organisation, I could only present the proposals I obtained and, unfortunately, the committee elected to use another company. From my point of view, Lorraine made my task to gather all relevant details very easy and her attitude was professional and courteous throughout. I have no reservations in recommending SmB to other businesses who seek to change energy suppliers."This review was posted by Two Locks Church on the 20th of March 2018
