Did you know that even small actions can have a big impact on the health of our planet?

Every time you cycle somewhere, or eat something grown here in Norfolk, you are helping to protect our environment. And when lots of people do these small things together, we can have a huge impact!

The Eco Expedition is all about taking small steps that add up to big changes.

Your quest might be to create something new from old clothes, count how many bees you meet in one day, or listen to a story about trees and retell it to someone. Track how many quests you do on a special chart and find out which type of eco-action suits you best.
