May 2013 Be the Start
We are Start, an initiative inspired by HRH The Prince of Wales.
Our aim is to make sustainable living second nature, so that everyone (and we mean everyone) can enjoy a better quality of life. Throughout May, we’re bringing together over 40 brilliant brands and organisations to help make this bold dream a reality.
On each day one of our partners will be bringing an aspect of sustainable living to life and doing so in all sorts of ways – social media, competitions, events, projects and more! All to help get you started.
Click on the one (or many) days that grab your interest and you’ll be whisked away to a Pinterest board created by the host of the day, filled with ideas and inspiration.
You can also visit startuk.org to find out more about what’s happening throughout the month.
So join us and help spread the word that an amazing, sustainable way of life is possible now. And you can #bethestart.
Who are Start?
Stop this. Be strict about that. Make do with this. In order to prevent that.
This is how so many organisations over the past years have approached
promoting sustainable lifestyles. But this is where we are different.
Start is all about, well, exactly that. Starting, not stopping. Inspiring not
instructing. Discovering, not demanding. Supporting not scaring. We’re all aware
that change is needed, but our aim is to encourage and promote the positive
actions we can all take, from the small things we do in everyday life to the bigger
things our society is responsible for.
We believe there’s so much for every one of us to benefit from. In the words of
HRH Prince of Wales at the launch of Start in 2010;
“Far too few talk about the potential for a sustainable future to be better and more
rewarding – both for us and nature – than the lives we lead now. This potential
needs to be communicated across the country and, indeed, the world”.
