When we first got to the beach, we thought we’d chosen a particularly clean spot, but how wrong we were!

That’s why it’s so important to regularly clean up after ourselves, make sure we use reusable products as much as possible and recycle where we can.

We’re so glad that days out like this will be a regular occurrence at Catch A Fire, with every employee being given an Ignite Day every year – the possibility to make a difference to the world around us. It really is the small things we do every day that can make a big change!
