Hello everyone and welcome to the Community’s second 21 day challenge!
What is a 21 day challenge I hear you ask? Well, apparently it takes 21 days to make or break a habit. And we’d like to try and make some more sustainable habits in our everyday lives. So, members of the PP team, as well as Community members, are teaming up each month to tackle a new challenge. And hopefully, some of the changes will stick! Our first challenge in September was a roaring success as we took to eating seasonally for 21 days. You can read more about the idea here, too.
In honour of the UN Climate Change Conference,COP26, this October we’ll be virtually walking to the conference from Pure Planet’s Bath office, and back again, in time for a good cup of tea and a natter. The conference starts on 31 October, and is being held in Glasgow this year, so we’ll be making our way through England and up across the border. We’ll be passing through many places for coffee and cake on the way, including one of the world's biggest wind farms, and Sporty Spice's home town!
It’s a 740 mile round trip, which according to my magic step calculator is 1,562,880 steps - nothing a few laps around the garden can’t achieve! I’ll be totalling up our step count along the way, as well as giving updates as to where we’ve reached on our journey.
We’ll use the replies section below to all post our progress, including plenty of pictures and updates. Walking more is a small change which we hope will reduce our carbon footprints, as we take to the pavements, rather than the roads. Plus, it’s a great way to stay active, and get outdoors!
Championing this month’s theme are our very own @Bev and
Let’s see if we can reach 1,562,880 steps by 21 October!
