1. Eat More Plants
Switching to a plant-based diet is the single biggest way we can reduce our environmental impact on the earth.
2. Take Public Transport When Possible
Public transport or car sharing is one easy way to reduce our overall environmental greenhouse gas emissions.
3. Grow Your Own Food
Growing your own food not only removes your food’s carbon footprint but also helps to absorb carbon and keeps your food pesticide free.
4. Buy Second Hand Or Go To A Clothes Swap
The fashion industry emits more carbon than international flights and shipping combined, and is a huge environmental pollutant. Buy second hand or attend your local clothes swap.
Composting food scraps reduces your greenhouse gas emissions and prevents unnecessary waste from going to landfills.
6. Buy Locally
Imported foods and products come with a hefty serving of carbon emissions. Support your local businesses and cut your carbon emissions by buying locally.
7. Offset When You Fly
Try to vacation locally. But when you do fly, buy carbon offsets to help remove your flights’ carbon emissions from the atmosphere.
8. Eat your leftovers
⅓ of all food produced is wasted; that means all the water, emissions and land used is also wasted. By making sure that we eat all the food we buy (including our leftovers) we can reduce our footprint significantly.
9. Visit Zero-Waste Shops & Bring Your Own Bags
Top up on necessary food and products at your local zero-waste shop and eliminate the use of single use packaging.
10. Tell your friends
Spread the word and share useful information with your friends, on how they can help to reduce their environmental impact.
