We had a brilliant day distributing 90 Green Hive bundles around the town
We want to say a huge thank you to Nicola, Simon and Andy at Nairn Community Transport for their amazing assistance in distributing all 90 bundles around the town - Caroline definitely would have struggled on foot!

We also want to thank our amazing Bumblebag volunteers who hand crafted each pencil case included in these bundles from recycled fabric and Greens Nurseries for sourcing the perfect houseplants at very short notice!
We want to enable you to feel supported in taking environmental action, whether you are out on a nature walk, or cosy in the house with a sustainable crafting project.
Each bundle contains:
A sturdy Green Hive bag made from 100% recycled plastic - suitable for use as a shopping bag, garden waste bag, litter picking bag or any other task for a bag.
The new Green Hive activity almanac, filled with easy crafting projects and tasty recipes, puzzles and local environmental information
Our popular Plastic Recycling Education pack - find out about plastic; identification, better recycling and getting involved in Green Hive's plastic recycling workshop

A 12 set of recycled plastic colouring pencils in a unique handmade pencil case made from recycled fabric (thank you Bumblebag volunteers!)
