Join the Movement and Make some Greener Choices

The more we hear about it in the news, the more concerned we get about the type of world we are bringing our children up into. There’s that feeling of helplessness that creeps in. What could I possibly do that would make a difference?

But there’s a huge amount we can do. We don’t have to turn our lives upside down but we can make some simple, positive adjustments to our day to day lives. If we all did a little bit imagine the difference we could make! And a lot of the time it is healthier for us too!

Here’s a few ideas of the changes you can make this Autumn:

Reduce single-use plastic

  • Invest in some reuseable food wraps like honey wraps and ditch the cling film once and for all!

  • Use reusable shopping bags

  • Use solid soaps instead of liquid

  • Invest in a soda stream for carbonated drinks such as water

  • Take a reusable water bottle wherever you go (make sure it’s empty before you go through security at an airport!)

  • Invest in a reusable coffee or tea cup

Save energy

  • Take a bike, walk, take public transport or lift share

  • Turn the heating or the aircon down

  • Air dry your clothes

  • Wash clothes less often (sometimes they just need an airing)

  • Turn the lights off when you’re not in the room

Save water

  • Take shorter showers

  • Invest in a grey water system to use for your garden

  • Capture rain water for your garden

Reduce waste

  • Invest in good quality clothing that will last

  • Compost all fruit and veg peelings, egg cartons, loo roll holder etc

  • Use egg shells on your garden to keep slugs away

  • Repair and mend things that are broken

  • Buy at farm stores or bulk shops to reduce packaging

Invest in some carbon off-set programs

Like Climeworks or Carbon Footprint
