Green Heart of Essex

Other ways to show you care

If you want to show you care about your local area, but don’t have the time to become one of our champions, there are plenty of other things you can do.

Green Heart activities

You can join a Green Heart activity near you such as:

  • maintaining a wildlife area
  • tidying a local area
  • picking up litter in your streets


Reduce, reuse, recycle and compost wherever you can. Encourage your family, friends and neighbours to do the same. 

Keep it tidy

Make sure you get rid of your litter, gum, and cigarette butts properly. Encourage your family and friends to do the same.

Contact us to report litter, fly tipping or anything else that is causing a mess

Keep your own garden tidy and attractive, encourage your neighbours to do the same or have some fun by doing it together. You can also offer to help those who are unable to tidy their garden for themselves

Spread the word

Send us your photographs. We are looking for beautifully observed, well composed pictures of our district. We will use the pictures to promote our district and Green Heart campaign.

You can email us your photos or send them to us on our Braintree District Council Facebook page.

You can find out about our activities and let us know how you are looking after you are on by following us on:

our Green Heart Facebook page

You can contact our Green Heart of Essex team for more information on how you can get involved.
