Earth Day 2021 Challenges

The theme for Earth Day this year is ‘Restore our Earth’.  We all hear reports on the challenges facing our planet, from Carbon, pollution and plastic to the vast issue of Climate Change.

As Investment Adviser to The PRS REIT plc, Sigma recognises that we have a role and responsibility to help make small changes and adjustments for positive impact, so this year we have encouraged Simple Life residents to implement some easy daily changes that could make a big difference to the environment.

The 7 Day Challenge:

  1. Meatless Monday – try out tasty meat-free alternatives and reduce your Carbon footprint
  2. Calculate your Carbon Footprint and make a change!
