Although lockdown has been stressful at times, one silver lining has been the positive impact quarantine measures have had on the environment. Photos have shown the increase in visibility thanks to a drop in air pollution, the levels of harmful gases such as nitrogen dioxide have fallen in cities across the UK, and wildlife has been seen exploring urban areas that are now much quieter.
As lockdown continues to ease across the UK, our team at TGR have been thinking about the different environmentally-friendly aspects of quarantine that we can continue to practice. Some of the pledges we have made are:
• Walking or cycling as much as possible
• Having local holidays
• Shopping locally
