All you need to know about NOW 2021

 

“Being green is more than just buying ‘eco’ it’s an unshakable commitment to a sustainable lifestyle” @ecowarriorprincess

 

This year the NOW campaign is the perfect opportunity to raise awareness, drive the conversation around this topic and inspire our clients, communities and society as a whole to take action.

National Organising week is back!

We are excited to announce that the focus is on ‘Organising Your Home Sustainable Living’.

This year it coincides perfectly with COP26, the UN’s Climate Change conference which began this week with much discussion focused on whether we can achieve net zero emissions by the middle of the century.

We all can admit that during the last 18 months the world around us has changed in so many different ways. Some good and others not so good but we can all agree that the changes happened quickly.

Throughout the pandemic we have been forced to look at the choices we make in our daily lives and how this affects those around us. This includes what we consume, use and waste. Being a conscious consumer is now more important than ever and as Professional Declutterers and Organisers we want to play a key role in helping to influence the choices our clients make around their everyday consumption.

National Organising Week is the moment to raise awareness and drive conversation around this topic to inspire our clients, communities and society as a whole to take action.

Our homes are where we spend most of our time now and by making positive and impactful choices in the way we set up, organised and maintain our homes, we can help to reduce waste and slow down climate change. Daily household habits applied across different corners of our home will save you money, time and energy. Being intentional about what you consume and planning how you do it is a great place to start. We need to make a difference NOW.

This year, we are excited to announce the following activity:

 

· Brand partnerships with leading household brands for including Horlicks and Fabulosa – Including product giveaways for a year or two.

"Having a designated National Organising Week gave me the impetus I needed to undertake some tasks I'd been procrastinating over - like sorting the cupboard under the stairs!"

"Thank you APDO for organising the NOW Twitter Chat. It was such a buzz to chat with professional organisers and get their hints and tips"
