  • 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?
