Cut down on my waste

We throw away an enormous amount of resources, with a third of fruit and vegetables not even making it onto our plates each year, 70 pounds of clothes thrown away each year per person, and more plastics expected to be in the sea than fish by 2050. We might not think about it at the time, but as well as costing us unnecessary money, our waste leaves a huge footprint. Challenge yourself to think differently when purchasing new clothes, find innovative ways to reuse everyday objects and show us using #ShowTheLove, or cut out your food waste by making delicious dishes out of those left over bits and bobs in the fridget at the end of the week.

Think about how I travel

The way we all travel has a huge impact on our climate, but it doesn’t take a lot to reduce our footprints. Could you take public transport to work instead of driving, or even better, walk or cycle? Incredibly, the number of electric cars in the UK grew by 23% in 2017 and there are now more charging points than there are petrol stations in the UK. Petrol and diesel are both being phased out by the government– could you get ahead of the curve and replace your car with an electric on that will leave the air cleaner for future generations?

Think about what I eat

What we eat has a profound impact on our environment. For example, beef requires 160 times more land and 11 times more water than staples like wheat and rice. Foods from the soil are better for our health and our carbon footprints. Eating seasonally and locally reduces the distance your food has to travel to reach your plate, whilst supporting the farmers closest to you. Are you ready to rise to the challenge and make some simple changes?

Make my home sustainable

We all want the heat that we’re paying for to stay within our homes and not be wasted, saving us money whilst protecting the things we love from climate change. There are simple ways of doing this, from turning the lights off and installing a smart meter, to better insulating your home. If you want to go further, join hundreds of thousands of households by switching your home to clean, renewable energy. You might even find you’ll save yourself some money.
