So what to start with. Well, lets start with my 2016 Reserves Challenge.
Reserves Challenge update
McDonalds - litter at Quarry Moor and bio-degradable packaging
|A Tufted Duck at Peasholm Park -|
I think they'd like biodegradable packaging too!
Biodegradable packing - the good new on this project is that the people who are emailing me are trying to get McDonalds to consider the new packaging! They do look at packging from time to time so if there is something they can use which is good for keeping the food nice and is biodegradable they might change the packaging. This might take a while though.
I'll be updating you on this when I hear more.
UK Blog Awards
This was amazing, a week or two ago I received an invitation (which is now on my bedroom wall ;-) to the awards the night, I already knew about it so it wasn't really only a week ago when I was invited. I didn't know this but 20,000 entries got voted in by the public and the UKBA took it down to 180 finalists so thanks to all who voted me in!
I was a finalist in both Green & Eco category (congrats to Wildlife Gadget Man who got a highly commended in this category). I was also a finalist in and got a highly commended award (i.e. I was in the top 3) for the Photography category!!! I was so happy to hear this so really thank you for everybody supports me!
A Planet Fit For Nature competition
This was more amazing news! Basically it's a competition where A Planet Fit For Nature encourages young people and their families to do things that help nature. They then decide from the entries who's conservation work is the 'best'. I put myself in with my #cleanfornature campaign (Post 400) including my McDonalads work and somehow I actually got first place!
Our 1st place goes to @nerdboy386 Zach! Zach you are an inspiration! Very well deserved! pic.twitter.com/JV75lE2Iju— APlanetFitForNature (@Fitfornature) 1 May 2016
Thank you so much to everybody that decided that I should win this. All the merchandise will be put to use in my nature antics. The new camera will be great for getting some macro shots of loads of things so I may need some pointers from Matt Doogue! Just want to thank Matt as well for basically being an inspiration right from the start of my blog as well as being one of my first big supporters. Thanks so much Big Dude! Really appreciate it and I think what you and everyone do at a Planet Fit For Nature is absolutely awesome.
I'm thinking what I can do to help support their latest campaign #fitfornature - watch this space.
I also got a nice message from a Naturalist you might know saying well done (think that may have been down to Matt too!)
