Useful Links & Tips

As an individual you can make valuable contributions to sustainability by reducing your carbon footprint. Small changes can have big impacts.

Here are ways you can make a difference

Help make a difference like planting trees
  1. Shop local: eating meat and seasonal fruit, vegetables from local sources will reduce the need for 'food miles' and keep money in the local economy. Move to a more plant based diet.
  2. Reduce your consumption; avoid waste: buy good quality items and clothing to last longer: swap clothing or buy second hand.
  3. Try to use less energy: make sure your home is as efficient as possible: use suppliers that use renewable energy.
  4. Avoid using a car as much as possible: use public transport: even better, for short journeys, walk. Give up flying!
  5. Divest your pension funds and savings: from fossil fuel investments.

Importantly: get involved in discussions and talking to others about the impact of climate change. Share tips and ideas.
