Sending a Message in a Bottle
Phil runs a Facebook group that encourages people to reduce their use of single use plastic, organises river and beach cleans and he speaks to children in schools about the effects of plastic on the environment. He is so passionate about the subject, he has reduced his own household waste to the point that his wheelie bin goes out about ONCE a YEAR! He also runs Llanidloes Landscape Scheme, working with the Woodland Trust and Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trust to encourage local landowners to plant trees, improve hedgerows and improve connectivity, planting thousands of trees over the last 3 years! Despite all this Phil, works full time for Powys County Council maintaining footpaths and ensuring safe access to the countryside for people all over Powys. But what has all this got to do with Wildlife Gardening?
