This World Water Day, our Europe-wide campaign #waterofthefuture goes online 🎉
Everything we do has a water footprint.
💧 It takes 12,000 litres to produce a new cell phone.
💧 It takes 2,700 litres to make a single cotton t-shirt.
💧 In 2050, half of the world's population will be affected by water scarcity.
🐪 Camels are lucky: They can go up to three weeks without water. Us humans won't survive more than three days. We are not camels. Use water responsibly!

This video is all about container planting! Container planting is really useful if you have limited space and no garden to speak of. It’s super versatile and you can use almost anything to grow in. Plants want to grow so if you just give them what they need they’ll flourish. Honestly, as long as you have the right size container you can grow anything in them. To get you started we're gonna show you how to plant herbs for your windowsill, your own bounty of salad leaves and how to grow spuds in a bag.

This World Earth Day we're bringing you some exciting videos to get your started on your journey. 🌍 Not got a garden or only have a tiny space? Then these videos are for you!
This first video is all about composting! We show you how you can compost on your backdoor step and how you only need a few things to get started. You save money, make great compost for your plants AND help the planet. Essentially, by composting at home you’re carbon offsetting you tea or coffee drinking habits! I think that’s pretty unreal! Check 'em out to start growing and saving the planet at the same time.

🌍 This is the second video from our World Earth Day event.
Not got a garden? Only have a tiny space? Then these videos are for you!
This one is all about vertical growing! This video is all about Vertical Growing and it’s great if you have limited space. In this video we show you a few ways to make the most of your small space AND upcycle some things you’ll find around the house. Vertical growing is basically about using all that vertical space that you usually don’t think about. It reduces your food miles and helps you upcycle everyday household items. Time to look at that space differently!

This years Global Schools Programme focused on transport, it's impact on the environment and how to improve it. An efficient and sustainable transportation sector is pretty important to our way of life. We have to be able to move around, we just have to make choices about how to do it in the most environmentally friendly way. Here's our wonderful workshop video from transition year students around Waterford. We just loved their ideas of actions they or decision makers should take for a more sustainable future and to achieve the SDG's. What actions are you going to take? Let us know in the comments below!
