As a community, what are some of the small things we can start doing to reverse climate change?
We all need to find our agency in this moment. And while individual actions do matter like reducing your food waste, buying less 'fast fashion’ items etc…, it is also important to push for larger, collective action at your workplace, children’s school or with your local MP. You might gather some other staff members and approach your boss, gather other parents and talk to the principal or assemble a group of residents and visit your MP’s office asking what they are doing about climate change.
Do you have any tips for more sustainable living at home?
Solar panels are the cheapest form of energy now for your home. It’s worth the investment and great for the planet. Renters should look at emerging ’solar gardens’.
Grow some food at home, anything, greens are easy even on a small balcony or in a window box.
Reduce your food waste and try to turn the waste you do create into compost or ask the council to start a pickup service.
If you are going to eat meat, try to reduce the amount and make sure it comes from grass fed, pasture raised or regenerative practices.
Make your home more efficient. Heat pumps, seal the cracks etc…you'll save money and help the planet.
