Q: What small change can I make to reduce my impact on the environment? It all adds up?
Ditch the cling film and use beeswax wraps
Swap driving for using the bus or train if a journey is feasible
Keep a reusable coffee cup in your bag to replace buying a plastic bottle or cup
Try to gradually shift shopping habits to more sustainable choices such as capsule wardrobe over fast fashion, and buying unpackaged fruit and veg
Change one or two (or as many as you can deal with!) meals to meat free
Support small, ethical businesses that care about the environment
Resist the tat! I know it’s cheap but really think about whether you need it
Of course Re-use, Recycle, Reduce – reduce being the most important one, recycling shouldn’t be seen as such a wonderful thing, of course it is better than landfill, but because it omits any responsibility for the amount of waste we are producing – when only 12% of the plastic ever produced has been recycled. Wouldn’t it be better to use other materials that aren’t made from fossil fuels?
