With over 1000 businesses, schools, universities, colleges, organisations and even those staying at home, already signed up, the inaugural Green Jumper Day is set to exceed all expectations.

Green Jumper is the charity hosting Green Jumper Day, an annual event taking action against climate change. On the 26th November, this year, all involved will turn down the heating, save energy, save money, wear a woolly jumper to keep warm (a green one if they have one), and donate to the Green Jumper charity.

The charity’s strapline is “…for the next generation”, so the money raised is spent on reforestation projects, and on providing free books and educational materials to schools, so our children and our children’s children can inherit a planet worthy of inheritance.

Steve Trew, Managing Director of GreenZone Cleaning & Support Services, one of the headline sponsors of Green Jumper, commented:
“We are really proud to be involved with Green Jumper from the outset. When we first started dialogue, it was clear that the purpose and essence of Green Jumper Day was not only a wonderful initiative, but in true harmony with our business mission and ethics. In the wake of COP26, we know we all need to play our part in trying to mitigate climate change and as so many of us at GreenZone are parents, we truly appreciate the value and importance of educating the next generation on such key issues for the future of their planet. ”

Alec Walton, the founder of the charity added:
“It is thanks to businesses like GreenZoneCleaning and the thousands of people taking part in Green Jumper Day, that will allow us to achieve our goals, and plant as many trees and give away as many books as possible”
