As the kids are now back at school, it`s time to talk about our Education Pack. ⏰
The Education Pack provides our children with knowledge about air pollution, its dangers and its causes. In addition, the pack has been designed in line with the KS2 curriculum, helping contribute to their wider development through lesson plans, interactive slides and creative thinking.

Today marks #InternationalDayOfCharity, in which we`re reminiscing about our support of EGO SOS, in partnership with @egopowerpluseu and @machinery_nation.
In a day, we helped a couple of families with their overgrown gardens using @egopowerpluseu`s battery-powered gardening tools, proving that you don`t need to compromise on quality when making environmentally conscious decisions.
Groundsfest combines indoor business and education opportunities, featuring a landscape zone, live demonstrations, educational seminars, free training and a live festival.
As part of the educational seminars, our Challenge 2025 Ambassador, Emma Gayler, will be presenting our findings and activities to date, looking at what is next and most importantly, why you should be leaving petrol power where it belongs... in the past.
Register for free tickets and sign up for Emma`s seminar via the #linkinbio.
Do you know the impact that petrol-powered tools are making on our parks?
According to our Report, 89% of tools used by UK councils are petrol-powered, using over 600,000 litres of petrol per year but this could be dramatically reduced by switching to battery-powered tools.
The irony is that councils are looking to reduce emissions through Clean Air Zones but with the machinery currently used, they`re making a huge contribution to increasing the levels of air pollution, a huge cause to a number of health conditions.
We want you to get behind Challenge 2025 by demanding better.
🏡 Demand better from the tools you use in your garden at home. 🏣 Demand better from the groundskeeping teams that maintain the areas near your offices, schools, universities, and leisure activities. 🏞️ Demand better from your local council and the tools they give their workers to manage your local green areas, parks, and playgrounds.
Lend us your voice by sharing, posting, and using the hashtag #Challenge2025.
Our Education Pack has been designed to provide ideas and resources to help Key Stage 2 pupils understand air pollution, its dangers, and its causes.
Including lesson plans, interactive slides, and activity sheets, the Education Pack allows pupils to learn about air pollution whilst contributing to their wider development in their Art, Science, and English curriculums.

This month it`s National Picnic Month, a time to make the most of the lovely weather with your family, friends, and loved ones! ☀️
However, a trip to your local park could easily be ruined by the use of petrol-powered tools.
As shown in the graph, petrol-powered tools produce a huge amount of noise pollution, meaning that you`re not able to hear people next to you and could even play a part in long-term hearing difficulties.
It`s time for people to make the switch to battery power and we need your support on our journey.
