Why are people wearing green hearts during February?

Our director Helen Tandy has done something around Show the Love since the campaign was launched, with her work, Friends of the Earth, Eco Communities, and the WI.

The Show the Love Campaign asks you to swap your red heart for green around valentines day each year. The campaign is via The Climate Coalition the same organisation that promotes people to get involved in Great Big Green Week each year.

The problems around Climate Change can feel huge, but together we can create real and meaningful change.

Start small – take action and #ShowTheLove for our planet.

Helen T has already completed one of two talks at work and is bringing this same talk via Eco Communities. It touches on The Climate Coalition campaign, where we are at re Climate Change and our work with Giki.

 Join her on Crowdcast Sunday 11am for a Tellus TV talk.

Helen also talks about the staggering profit announcements from the worlds Oil & Gas companies “ As I talk to the team Castlefield and over the weekend to supporters of Eco Communities about Climate Change and the #showthelove campaign. The profit announcers from Oil & Gas companies clearly why we all need to divest from #fossilfuels – check your pension, your investments and your bank. Show them we don’t want this to continue.

‘The sale of oil and gas remains so enticing that BP this week announced it is scaling back its climate ambitions, retaining its fossil fuel assets for longer than it previously expected. “We need continuing near-term investment into today’s energy system – which depends on oil and gas – to meet today’s demands and to make sure the transition is an orderly one,” said Bernard Looney, BP’s chief executive. “At the end of the day, we’re responding to what society wants.”’

How to ‘show the love’:

  • Make a green heart.
  • Wear and share your green heart.
  • Take your heart to all the places you love.

 Take a heart to a place you love

Climate change has already made its mark on the British landscape, where our lives play out and our memories are made. In fact, all over the world, people and the places they cherish are being affected by climate change.
