The green hearts were made by member Sally Bryers in support of the National Federation of WIs project to raise awareness about climate change and the impact it will have on all the things we love. Each heart crocheted by Sally depicted just one of the things we could lose as a result of climate change e.g. Bees, chocolate, turtles, wine, beaches etc., etc.
The WI is a founder member of The Climate Coalition (TCC) and is therefore, one of over 100 organisations and over 15 million people working for action on climate change. One of the TCC core campaigns is focused around Valentine’s Day and is called ‘For the Love Of…’, hence the hearts! It is hoped that WI members in Ruddington will wear their green hearts when out and about to engage the interest and activity of others and so raise awareness about climate change.
