GreenBuying.co.uk is not just about showcasing the best of British companies who produce eco friendly products. Its other key objective is to educate school children about sustainability and how their behaviour can make a difference to the planet. They are the next generation of consumers so we see it as vital that we educate them to be pro-environmental and challenging of companies who will sell to them as adults.
To achieve this objective, we volunteer time periodically working with schools, either on-site delivering presentations or off-site at conferences.
