Welcome to the Earth Hour action!

Challenge your peers to switch off all electricals during the lunch break and spend some quality time together.

Here are some ideas to get you building better relationships with each other and the planet, whilst boosting team morale!

Do a lunchtime litter pick

You don’t have to go far to find litter. Grab some litter pickers or gloves and spend 15 minutes cleaning up your local environment – the local wildlife will thank you for it! 

Enjoy a planet-friendly buffet

Bring some fun to lunchtime and get yummy new ideas by each bringing a homemade dish and sharing your favourite recipes! If you want to take it up a notch then suggest lunch is made with minimal packaging, locally sourced or includes an organic ingredient! 

Get educated

Organise a screening or arrange a speaker to give a talk on a relevant and interesting subject to help motivate, educate, and inspire your peers

Suggested topics: energy use and renewables, looking after electronics and E-waste, plastic-free living, and how to engage with your local councillors/lobby MPs. 

UK folk may want to start with one of the following to organise a speaker: a local E-waste company, energy provider, WRAP, Friends of the Earth, local sustainability groups. And/or rope a peer into speaking for five minutes about what sustainability means to them! 

Suggestions screenings: Our planet, our business, 2040, TED Talks

Get outside

Eat your sandwiches in the park, go for a stroll, take 15 minutes looking at the local birdlife, or explore your surroundings with play.
