Welcome to Planet Aware
In light of the current situation with the Covid-19 virus Planet Aware is postponing any of its public events that were due to take place in March and April. This is a difficult and uncertain time for everyone and we hope to be able to play our role in supporting local the local community through online activities. Please do stay well and stay in touch with us via social media and email. If you have tips or advice about using less stuff, such as reducing waste from food or upcycling, that you would like us to share – please do get in touch!
We develop creative, fun and effective campaigns in the Solent area that help people make smarter environmental choices. Our aim is to help cut the amount we consume – from plastics to power – and make better use of the world’s resources. We have a big focus on our fabulous coast which means that many of our campaigns and projects are created with the oceans in mind.
We run Refill Isle of Wight – the Island’s version of the national Refill campaign launched by City to Sea in 2015. Refill is all about making it easy for people to refill their reusable water bottles rather than buying bottled – avoiding adding to plastic pollution and litter.
Planet Aware hosts community events that are either no-cost or low-cost, including Beach Cleans and our ‘Alternative Spirit of’ events that encourage people to celebrate seasonal events by connecting with each other and their environment.
You can also find out about events celebrating our coasts, including seashore safaris and beach cleans via The Solent Beach Hub. This is our one-stop shop for events in the area run by various community groups and charities. Please do submit your own event! Please note that we will not be featuring this service for the time being because of the ongoing situation regarding the Corona Virus.
We develop and deliver projects with local partners and also work with local businesses and organisations to help them reduce their environmental impact. Right now, we are developing a sustainable events service to support smaller event providers in the Solent region.
Our work is supported by careful research and we seek the most appropriate local solution for businesses wanting to enhance their sustainability.
At Planet Aware we are always on the look out for creative ideas and projects to help you reduce your impact on the natural world around us. If you would like to find out more about working with us get in touch today.
