As part of The Ball’s journey, partner organisations are hosting Pledge Events with the aim of inspiring their communities to commit to a more environmentally friendly lifestyle.
There are many sustainable actions which each one of us can pledge to take – ranging from washing at 30°C to growing one’s own vegetable garden to halving or eliminating meat consumption or using public transport. Like our partner Pledgeball, we understand a ‘Pledge’ as a record of the change that we are about to make which will have a positive impact on the environment.
The Story So Far
