Great British Spring Clean (28 May – 13 June)

At Futures in Mind, we are passionate about the environment and so too are our partners Phoenix Futures. As part of Phoenix Futures environmental and sustainability strategy we want to reduce waste within our service. Together, we can make strides for a better future and little things can make a big difference! This is why, as a team, we want to take a pledge to pick.

 

The Great British Spring Clean runs from 28 May to 13 June, to keep Britain tidy and clear litter from our streets, parks and beaches ensuring our outdoor spaces are clear for everyone to enjoy. As an organisation, Futures in Mind, is pledging 10 hours of litter picking and this will be turned into miles with the hope that come summer, we can all enjoy a cleaner, greener and litter-free environment.

 

To make this litter pick a bit more interesting we will be setting up a leader board so we can see who has undertaken more hours to the Phoenix Futures pledge.

 

If you’re a service user or volunteer and would like to get involved, there are a few groups around Essex who will be undertaking the pledge as part of their group activities please ask your service coordinator for more information.
