YES PLANTS CAN
The UN has warned us that we have just twelve years to limit global warming to 1.5C.
With scientists also warning of the very real risks of flooding, overheating and damage to infrastructure, there has never been a more urgent time to act.
We know we need to cut our emissions and develop new technologies to tackle this problem, but this will be a long and expensive process.
Plants could account for a third of the actions needed by 2050 under the UK Climate Change Act, yet they make up just 7% of public discussion.
This continuing imbalance means we’re ignoring a powerful part of the solution. A part that is readily available, low-cost and could benefit the lives of millions of people in Britain.
PLANTS are a critical part of the climate change solution, but they take up just 7% of the public conversation. This imbalance needs to be addressed.
We believe in the power of plants to help fight climate change.
Seventh Generation – the eco-friendly household cleaning company – has teamed up with plant conservation experts Plantlife, to call on the government to deliver on its promise to create or restore 500,000 hectares of species rich habitat by 2043.
Achieving this target would absorb the emissions of every registered vehicle in the UK.
We are asking for an action plan that shows how the government will meet this target, and a commitment to delivering initial results within the next five years.
Sign our petition today and join the fight to put plants back on the climate change agenda.
