Cheeky Panda Dresses Wild for Wildlife
In support of endangered animals, The Cheeky Panda teamed up one of the world's leading independent conservation organisations WWF. The Cheeky Panda's passion for sustainability is closely aligned with WWF's key values for sharing the planet's resources more sustainably, tackling climate change and protecting endangered wildlife.In a bid to address the world's most important challenges, the cheeky team took to their wardrobes in search of the wildest thing they could find. Steering away from the obvious choice, the Majestic Panda, the team were tasked with sourcing an outfit that best represents their favourite endangered animal. This resulted in an eclectic mix of polar bears, bees and silver backed gorillas. Safeguarding the natural world, tackling climate change and enabling people to use their fair share of natural resources takes more than just fun and outrageous costumes, these are one of many pieces in the Solution Puzzle. Alongside this dress to impress, participants were encouraged to donate funds to this organisation. This is only the beginning, however small steps like this towards the right direction are all it takes to inspire change and improvement.'Together we can build a future where people and nature thrive' (WWF)
Wake Up And Smell The Plastic
Plastic is one of the biggest problems for the environment in the UK today. Studies reveal an estimation between 1.15 to 2.41 million tonnes of plastic entering oceans through rivers annually. Some of these top contributing rivers can be found in Asia, contributing up to 67% of all plastics flowing into the ocean from rivers around the world. The last 70 years has seen a dramatic increase on demand for plastic. Shockingly around 300 million tons of plastic is being produced globally every year, half of this is being used for disposable items. 8 million tonnes of this plastic then ends up in our oceans every year, once there it is there to stay. Plastic is favoured for use in a wide range of industry due to its durability. This is good for suppliers and end users but extremely bad for the environment. This durable material begins its slow breakdown into smaller pieces when exposed to sunlight or extremely warm temperature. Since the ocean is beyond freezing, this breakdown process takes that much longer, meanwhile more and more plastic continues to be discarded and ending up in the sea. (more…)
