Be Plastic Clever An interactive table of information and activities hosted by Amy (14) and Ella (12), founders of Kids Against Plastic
Kids Against Plastic was an initiative set up by Amy and Ella when they were 12 and 10 years old respectively. They became interested in the impact of single-use plastics on the environment and wildlife after studying the UN's Global Goals and, in the spirit of the Goals, decided to do their bit. Their Be Plastic Clever campaign is a positive initiative that encourages schools, cafes, businesses, FESTIVALS.... everyone if fact to be discernible users of single-use plastics. Come along to their stand to learn how YOU can become Plastic Clever and do your bit to tune off the tap of single-use plastic pollution.

John Muir Trust A membership-based conservation charity dedicated to protecting and enhancing wild places
The John Muir Trust is dedicated to protecting and enhancing wild places. Some of the finest and best-loved UK mountain landscapes are under our care. The Trust has taken on the management of Glenridding Common in the Lake District until October 2020. Currently the wild quality of Striding Edge, Helvellyn and Swirral Edge suffers due to erosion, flooding and high footfall. We’re working with the local community and partners to strengthen the wild character of the area. The Trust also cares for parts of Ben Nevis, Schiehallion, Knoydart, Quinag, Sandwood Bay and areas of the Cuillin mountain range on Skye. We restore natural habitats, maintain footpaths, clear litter and help nature flourish in these magnificent landscapes. We campaign to protect wild land from inappropriate development and work to keep wild places open for all to enjoy, connect with and care for through initiatives such as the John Muir Award. Discover how to help us enhance the wild places in our care. Together we can ensure people and nature thrive.
