Sustainability at home

A greener garden

Trees and green spaces support biodiversity, take in carbon and improve air quality. By conserving nature and restoring ecosystems, even in our homes and gardens, we are working to tackle the climate crisis.

You could...

  • Start your own compost pile
  • Leave your lawn unmown for at least a month in the spring/summer

A planet-friendly diet

The food industry contributes significantly to global greenhouse gas emissions, with meat and dairy production causing 14.5% of global emissions. Thinking a bit more about what we eat, where it comes from and what we throw away we can help to create a greener future for all of us.

You could...

  • Try Meat Free Mondays (or Tuesdays, or Wednesdays)
  • Reduce food waste
  • Grow your own fruit and veg

Sharing is caring

Many people in your inner circle and beyond do care about the environment, they just may not have been exposed to the same information as you or I. One way to help further the cause, is by talking about it more!

You could...

  • Talk about climate change with your friends and family
  • Use free time to learn more about environmental issues
  • Share your sustainable skills with friends and family

Happy homes

The homes we live in can contribute to climate change and the items in them too - how often we them, how often we use them and how long we keep them for. We spend so much time in our homes, let’s make them somewhere comfortable to live whilst contributing less to climate change.

You could...

  • Repair or upcycle household items and clothing instead of buying new
  • Buy second hand in charity shops or online marketplaces, like eBay, Depop or Vinted
  • Use free sharing apps such as Trash Nothing and Olio to redistribute unwanted goods and food
  • Reduce your plastic waste by swapping to reusable items or ditching the packaging all together
