Leave No Trace Ireland has submitted its entry to the annual Charity Impact Awards. We’d love it if you would vote for us! The Charity Impact Award celebrates the positive impact that charities, community groups, and voluntary organisations are making in people’s lives across Ireland.
As more people seek the beauty of the outdoors, our collective mark on the environment increases. The COVID-19 pandemic had a profound impact on which sports Irish people take part in, with individual sports and activities such as walking, running and cycling experiencing unprecedented growth. One report from Sport Ireland saw participation in outdoor recreation and sport double during the pandemic. The increase in outdoor recreation over the last 18 months has led to a dramatic increase in litter, water pollution, as well as disturbance to vegetation, wildlife, livestock and other people. That’s where we come in. Leave No Trace Ireland is Ireland’s only outdoor ethics programme, which promotes the responsible use of the outdoors.
If you think we deserve your vote, you can vote for us here. The closing date is 3 November. Thank you so much for your support!
