Week 19 - 7 random green things to do this week
7 random green things to do
1. Have a non-TV day
2. Star gaze
Tonight if the skies are clear over northern Europe you will be able to see hundreds of shooting stars as part of the Perseid Meteor Shower. Even if you've missed seeing this celestial spectacle just lie back and enjoy the night sky in all its greatness.

3. Donate something to a charity shop
Go on - have a clear out and donate some unwanted items to your local charity shop.
4 years ago lots of you volunteered to help at The London Olympics. Do you still volunteer? If not why not see what opportunities there are locally. What about some volunteering with a wildlife project or spending some time with the elderly?
5. Start making Christmas presents
I know, I am sorry to mention the dreaded C word but why not get organised and start making some presents. People love receiving home-made preserves and now is an ideal time to make them with your own or local produce readily available.
6. Search out a new organic, ethical or fair-trade shop
As I mentioned recently supermarkets are not generally very good for the environment or you so why not branch out and see what other shops are available locally. Even if you don;y have any local "green" shops you could support your local butcher, baker, greengrocer etc and help keep the high street alive.
7. Sponsor a goat
By giving a family a goat in places such as Africa you help give them a more secure future. The goat gives milk to help feed the family or can be sold giving cash for other goods, medicines, education etc. Their droppings help fertilise the land and their kids can either be kept to build up a bigger herd or sold for profit. Further details can be found at World Vision.
