Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust, the county’s leading conservation charity is excited to announce that Mayborn Group (Sangenic International Ltd) based in Mansfield, home of the tommee tippee® brand is continuing their Business Partnership with the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust to make the natural world more accessible to young children and their families by sponsoring both the Trust’s seven Wildlife Watch Groups and the Wildlife Watch Magazine for junior members.
Today’s youngsters to become tomorrow’s guardians of our precious natural world
Mayborn have recently launched their Brighter Futures campaign which sees Mayborn taking action to protect the planet today so young people can live well in it tomorrow and ensure the society they will grow up in will help them to shine bright. Mayborn are also taking steps at their Mansfield based manufacturing site to make it as environmentally friendly as possible, following a recent site ecology study completed by East Midlands Ecology Consultancy (EMEC) they plan to add bird boxes and feeders, native shrubs and a pond in a bid to enhance their site for wildlife and biodiversity.
There are seven Wildlife Watch Groups across Nottinghamshire that meet monthly to give children an opportunity to connect with nature through a range of wildlife activities. Funding from business’s like Mayborn enable the Watch Group leaders to welcome back members to engage and inspire these budding naturalists through innovative and creative activities.
The Wildlife Watch Magazine is published 4 times a year and is shared with the Trusts family members to connect and educate children about wildlife and the natural environment with the joint aims of fostering a responsibility for the care of the natural world which hopefully will continue with them into adulthood. In the last 12 months more than 650 family members across Nottinghamshire have been inspired by this magazine.
As well as inspiring children to connect with nature the Trust will work with Mayborn to connect with their employees to share the Trust’s and Mayborn’s environmental goals aiming to educate and inspire them to take their own actions including via Wild Work Days valuing the benefits that nature can bring to their own wellbeing.
Leysa Relf, Global H&S and Sustainability Manager at Mayborn Group said “We are delighted be to continuing our business partnership with Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust and to work with them to inspire future generations and our employees to care about nature and the environment. As a business we are committed removing single-use plastics / pollution and achieving net zero carbon by 2030.”
NWT’s Business Partnerships Officer Emily Patrick added, “Today’s children are the future guardians of the environment and it is so important for them to build connections with nature and wildlife at a young age. The continued support from Mayborn will greatly add to the Trust’s work with children and young people and fits in with the Trust’s new goal of getting 1 in 4 people engaged with nature by 2030.”
