Doing your bit to save the planet has never been so important. More and more people are conscious of climate change, recycling, ditching plastic and getting rid of straws that if you’re not aware of this, you must have been living under a rock. If everyone did a little bit and made a contribution in some way, then it could make a huge difference, so if you don’t know what to do or what will make a difference then have a look here for ways in which you can help.
You will still get the same benefits, but you’ll be being a lot kinder to the environment if you switch to a green provider. Many companies now offer renewable energy tariffs, so it couldn’t be simpler to do.
Eat Less Meat
If you can’t cut it out entirely then simply try to cut down on your meat consumption as the emissions from intensive dairy and cattle farming are a big part of the problems with climate changes and the environment. You will also enjoy a healthier diet too.
Be Conscious Of Other Food
Think about where your food is coming from and how far and how it’s had to travel. Try to keep your diet full of seasonal locally sourced ingredients which you can be sure to do if you start shopping at your local greengrocer.
Not only will this keep you fit and healthy but Petrol and diesel cars are a huge source of emissions, bad for both air quality and climate change so if it’s too far to walk then use public transport where possible or hop on your bike.
There are increasing pressures on water supplies, and there is a more significant environmental impact associated with new projects as well as deteriorating water quality in reservoirs. Rainwater harvesting with small water tanks allows people to manage and create their own water supplies, which would enable self-reliance and sustainability. If we all make an effort to sustain the environment, this contributes to the overall conservation of our natural resources, which are becoming more and more precious.
Change Your Holiday Destinations
As Aviation is a huge part of carbon emissions, if you are a frequent flyer then perhaps it’s time to rethink where you’re going or how you’re getting there. Don’t feel bad about enjoying a lovely holiday but perhaps your second one in the year could be a trip to somewhere locally which you can either drive to or even go by train.
Start with making changes to your lifestyle, but if you want to make more of an impact, then get involved and take action. Write a letter to your MP, ask questions to your local council, just be as vocal as you can and put pressure on them.
