We all know how important it is to reduce our impact on the planet as much as we can, with the climate crisis hitting the headlines on a daily basis… but it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by it all and it can be hard to know where to begin.
To mark World Wildlife Day, the UN’s campaign to celebrate wild animals and plants, which took place on March 3rd, the Independent came up with some excellent ideas to help steer people in the right direction where their eco-friendly ambitions are concerned.
These included using vegetarian food boxes to help you immediately cut back on your intake of meat and dairy products, one very effective way of tackling the climate emergency head on. Beef is apparently one of the main drivers of deforestation, so by reducing the amount of meat you eat, you can make a very significant difference to the planet.
Another suggestion was making your garden more wildlife-friendly, encouraging bees to come and visit you by planting wildflowers. Since 1900, the UK alone has lost 13 species of bee and another 35 are now facing extinction.
Consuming less is also key to being more sustainable so try and be more mindful with your shopping habits. Learn how to differentiate between want and need, and you’ll soon find that your purchasing style changes quite quickly indeed.
Think minimalistically and ask yourself if you really have to have that new, shiny thing - and make reduce, reuse, recycle your mantra for life!
