'Be nature nice!'
'Bí dóighiúil don dúlra!'

Hello Forest Friends

A big welcome back from all of us in the forest. We hope you had a treemendous summer.

We've been busy all summer long getting ready for Tetra Pak Tree Day 2018 which takes place on Thursday, 4th October. The theme for this year's campaign is "Be nature nice! or Bí dóighiúil don dúlra!". It's all about thinking twice about the things we do and use everyday and making better choices for the environment.

It's the smallest things that can make the biggest difference like choosing packaging that comes from renewable resources, recycling, cutting down on food waste and of course, being kind to our trees because they're so kind to us!

To find out more about how you can Be Nature Nice! this Tetra Pak Tree Day, check out Sammy's 7 Savvy Tips for a Greener Planet on the back of Avonmore School Milk cartons or click here  to see all the packs.

This year, we're putting a spotlight on a special native Irish tree called Guelder-rose. It's a particular favourite of mine because it encourages our great friends the bees to pollinate. This helps the plants to grow, breed and produce food.

You can also take the Forest Pledge and get a FREE Guelder-rose tree to plant on your school grounds here. Or why not enter our competition to WIN an iPad for your class? T&Cs apply.

So much to do. So many trees to climb!
