Justin Madders, MP for Ellesmere Port and Neston, has joined hundreds of thousands of people up and down the country proudly wearing green hearts to show they want to protect the people, places and lives they love from climate change.
Justin wore the heart as part of The Climate Coalition’s ‘Show The Love’ campaign which celebrates things that could be lost without efforts to tackle climate change – from beaches to bees and cricket to coffee – and aims to encourage people to take action to protect the things they love.
The Climate Coalition is made up of more than 130 organisations representing over 15 million people, ranging from aid agencies such as CAFOD and Christian Aid to groups such as the Women’s Institute, WWF, RSPB, and the National Trust.
“Climate change is already changing the things we love in the UK. It’s also hitting the most vulnerable people, whether that’s very young or elderly people struggling with heatwaves here at home, or those in poor communities overseas affected by a loss of crops or more severe disasters.
“It’s really important to take a moment to reflect on what could be under threat in our own lives.
“I’m proud to be wearing my green heart and supporting a net zero future before 2050. I want to be part of leaving a legacy for future generations that we can all be proud of.”
