A Date for your Diary
People generally consider information, make decisions and then take actions through conversations with people they trust. That’s how change begins. So, if our planet is to be sustained for future generations then the social will needs to be there to mobilise action. Across the world policies, technologies and practices already exist that could lessen the impact or help reverse the human contribution to the speed of global warming but it begins at home.
We hope you’ll be getting out to enjoy the sun this weekend? Whether it’s the coast you’re heading for, or the hills, do remember the sunscreen, a hat and have plenty to drink because burns and headaches are no fun at close of play.

Swedish brand Fjallraven makes highly functional, durable clothing and equipment that lasts for generations - all made with high sustainability standards because nature informs and inspires everything they do.
