Friends of the Earth have a tip each day for doing something to save the environment and one tip recently recommended avoiding car pollution, traffic and fuel bills by walking to school in little crocodile convoys.

More information is available at  www.walktoschool.org.uk.

Anyway this got us thinking that with the year coming to a close in a few weeks time, our last competition before Christmas should perhaps focus on thoughts of a better environment for 2010. So with our “Love Your Environment” theme in mind we would like your top idea for a New Years Resolution that is good for the environment.

Be as creative as you like and our favorite ideas will go onto the Blog in the New Year. The very best one of the bunch will also win a beautifully crafted solid wood and stainless steel Children’s Hand Trowel plus 10 packets of herb, vegetable and flower seeds to plant in the New Year.

Email your entries to charlotte@gardeningwithchildren.co.uk by no later than 31st December 2009.
