Join the Planet Pledge party!

We’re encouraging our epic Batonbearers to take a few pledges to help make the relay more sustainable. During the 32-day relay why not take on challenges such as eating vegan for a month, volunteering at a local climate project, or attending a climate or nature event in your area as part of the Great Big Green Week.

Join in on the action and choose your pledges when registering for your relay stage. 🙌


Pledge 1

Get there greener - travel low carbon to my relay stage.

Pledge to use public transport, arrive on foot or by bicycle for travelling to and from your relay stage. If you need to travel by car, bring friends along to share the ride. Top tip: Plan your stages around train stations or bus stops! Let's keep the relay fossil free!
