Autumn Fair

4-7 September 2022 | NEC BIRMINGHAM

Power of One

What's your pledge?

Power of One is a new initiative being adopted by Autumn Fair to highlight the impact we each have on the environment. Supporting the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 12: Responsible Consumption and Production, the campaign seeks to demonstrate how a combination of small, individual changes can create a more sustainable future for all.

We're championing five actionable pledges that can be implemented straight away at home and at the office.

Bring Your Own
Reduce packaging, bring your own bag, reusable cup, or bottle.

Pass It On
Get serious about recycling and upcycling household goods, make donations (kindness is contagious).

Turn It Down
Take control of the thermostat at home and work, from washing laundry to room temperature.

Actually I Can
Be empowered to make a stand and make a change. No voice or action is too small.

Get Dirty
Wear more and wash less, showers over baths to reduce water and wastage.
