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, 32 kilograms of clothes thrown away each year per person, and more plastics expected to be in the sea than fish by 2050. Our waste isn’t just leaving a huge footprint, it’s costing us unnecessary money! Challenge yourself to think differently when purchasing new clothes. Find innovative ways to reuse everyday objects or cut your food waste by making delicious dishes out of those left over bits and bobs in the fridge at the end of the week.

Giving it a go? Show us what you’ve been up to to reduce your waste using #ShowTheLove

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 your footprint. 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 one that will leave the air cleaner for us and 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 produces 11 times more greenhouse gases than staples like potatoes 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 to heat our homes in the most cost effective way whilst ensuring the warmth we’re paying for is staying within our four walls, right? 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 a clean, renewable energy provider. Big Clean Switch will even do the hard work for you! A couple of minutes could save you a whole load of pounds.

Plant a tree

Trees are amazing – not only are they living monuments to health, wealth and happiness, but they work silently to lock up carbon. We’re working with member organisation, The Woodland Trust, to help you #ShowTheLove for your community through tree planting. Whether it’s one tree in your garden or a whole wood; if you are a community group or school you can get up to a few hundred trees to plant... for free! Individuals can choose from a wide range at their store.
