GreenZone are supporting Green Jumper Day!
We’re turning down our thermostats and staying warm in our green jumpers!
Green Jumper Day is a new charity event, taking place for the first time this year, on November 26th. The aim is to raise awareness of climate change and educate the next generation about this issue.
The Green Jumper team are encouraging businesses, schools, and individuals to take part, simply by wearing a green jumper and turning the heating down by a few degrees, to save energy.
Just like the team at GreenZone, the people behind Green Jumper Day are dedicated to making a real difference, and to leaving the planet better than they found it.
“We are really proud to be involved with Green Jumper from the outset. When we first started dialogue, it was clear that the purpose and essence of Green Jumper Day was not only a wonderful initiative, but in true harmony with our business mission and ethics. In the wake of COP26, we know we all need to play our part in trying to mitigate climate change and, as so many of us at GreenZone are parents, we truly appreciate the value and importance of educating the next generation on such key issues for the future of their planet.”Steve Trew

All funds raised go towards providing books for children, inspirational talks for teens, and planting trees. The Green Jumper team have commissioned 2 authors – Jenny Bailey and Chris Madeley – to write books about climate change. These will be gifted to primary schools across the country.
Inspirational talks for teens are being delivered virtually until the speakers – Ashley Cooper and Paula Widdowson – are able to visit schools again. The Green Jumper team are working with WWF and their Plant a Trillion Trees initiative, but are also keen to fund local tree-planting programmes.
Join us by donning your favourite green jumper (or a cosy jumper in any colour if you don’t have a green one!) on November 26th, turn down your heating by a couple of degrees and help raise awareness about climate change.
