I'm setting myself two challenges in 2020 and you can join in! Click on the pictures above or the buttons under the text for more info on each challenge...
Challenge 1: Plastic Free Challenge
Challenge one is all about trying to live as plastic free as possible, especially single use plastic. Every month I'll be sharing a fun way to cut back on plastic use, which you can join in with. You can join in by sharing your own ideas, trying out the ideas I share once a month or sharing your experiences by reaching out to me via email or by tagging me in a post. It's not about being perfect, but just about figuring out small ways to cut down plastic use at home and while out and about. You can also join in by sharing the ideas in your stories or just trying the ideas yourself at home. By sharing ideas of how to re-think how we use plastic and recording my giving things a go I want to make the challenge fun and accessible for anyone who wants to get involved.

Challenge 2: Endangered Animal Stitching Challenge
The second challenge is a stitching challenge! Every month I'll be sharing facts about an endangered animal and stitching a hoop inspired by a different endagered animal! I'll be using reclaimed fabric to stitch the hoops and 100% of any profits of the hoops sold will go to the World Wildlife Fund to help these beautiful animals out. You can join in by stitching your own embroidery inspired by the animal I share each month and tagging me or dming me so I can share your stitching in my stories, it can be as simple or as complex as you like! Another way you can join is just by sharing the endangered facts about the animals I share, helping build awareness around the animals and how we can help to keep them around. The fourth endangered animal is the beautiful Plains Bison! The plains bison is a threatened species and is sometimes thought to be extinct due to heavy losses to their population over time! WWF are working with many Native American tribes to regrow plains bison populations. There used to be several million plains bison roaming the plains in the US whereas now there are only a few hundred wild plains bison.
