Organic September was founded by the Soil Association to try to encourage consumers to try organic produce and become more aware of farming procedures. From making smart purchase choices to growing your own fruit and veg, starting an organic living journey can begin with the smallest of steps. Whether you want to cut down your impact on the Earth or you wish to help wildlife and animals, living organically can aid more than just the environment directly around you. With more of us becoming eco-conscious and aware, it no surprise that sales of Soil Association labelled organic products are on the up, although we must be aware that some items are not all they seem.
Water is a very valuable commodity and as our population increases, the need for running water becomes greater. Small wastes can become large-scale problems when many households exhaust the supply.

Water Butts Direct have teamed up with Thames Water to help and educate people on how to use and save their water better.

Many of the displays were either made from eco-friendly resources, revealed inventions to help green programs across the world or were trying to raise awareness.
