Wildflower seeds to be planted at c2c Rail stations

Essex Wildlife Trust is delighted to be supporting c2c Rail with their first first ‘Go Green’ week from 23rd to 29th of September 2019 to help raise awareness around climate change and to share their commitment to making their impact on the environment as small as possible.

As part of the initiative, c2c are committing to sharing wildflower seeds with station staff to scatter at the stations during this week. c2c have sought advice from Essex Wildlife Trust on how to use disused land around the railways and stations to protect local wildlife, and talking about more eco friendly ways for customers to get to and from the station. 

John More, Living Landscape Coordinator for Essex Wildlife Trust said: “We’re thrilled to be working with c2c rail on this project raising awareness around the potential wildlife value  of how to use disued land and how it can be improved to it promote wildlife.” 

As part of the initiative c2c are trying to encourage the people of Essex to ditch their cars and take the train by offering a 50% discount this week. With so many beautiful nature reserves close by, it could also be an opportunity for local people to explore the woodlands, coastal paths and parks in South Essex.
