Treedom Fighters: Get kids planting trees this half term


Peter Seabrook, backed by charity The Woodland Trust, tells how your kids can do their bit to slow down climate change by helping to plant 50million trees.

The Sun's Green Team have teamed up with the global Count Us In initiative to urge Sun readers to shrink their carbon footprint. If every reader signed up to three of our seven pledges at thesun.co.uk/pledge, it would save 42million tonnes of carbon a year – the same emissions produced by all of our agriculture industry.

Here, Peter explains why October is the perfect time to get your children outdoors collecting conkers and acorns and creating their own green shoots.
