Green Gestures

Making small gestures in life can mean a lot to people. Whether they are your family, friends or a loved one. Green Gestures are meant to be small things that you can change in your everyday life to help the planet and therefore will mean a lot to everyone. Explore the tabs below to find out some small changes that you can make to reduce the amount of short life plastic products that you use, and who knows, if enough people make a small change companies may start to take notice. Don’t forget to share what you do by taking pictures and tagging #GreenGestures
