Nestlé Waters, the number one bottled water company worldwide, today announces the details of a new campaign – Get Better with Nature – which aims to help raise awareness of the growing body of evidence that supports the value of nature on health and wellbeing to communities across Derbyshire and the rest of the UK.
Nestlé Waters is calling on Buxtonites to volunteer to help their local environment and improve their own health and wellbeing by whipping on wellies and grabbing some gloves for a community day of action being organised in Buxton Pavilion Gardens from 9:30am on Thursday 23rd October.
Over 130 local Nestlé Waters employees, Derbyshire Wildlife Trust supporters, Buxton schoolchildren and members of the community descended on Serpentine Walk opposite the Pavilion Gardens on Thursday last week to take part in Nestlé Waters first ever ‘Get Better with Nature’ Community Day of Action.
Buxton schools took part on Friday and Monday the 23rd of March in a whole host of fun games and educational activities to celebrate World Water Day 2015. The international day organised by the United Nations is an annual event that sees children all over the world taking part in activities which highlight the importance of fresh water globally.
