7 Ways YOU Can Reduce Your Impact on the Planet

January 20, 2019

I’m not vegan or vegetarian, I wear leather shoes, and I buy food in plastic packaging most days. So, why am I writing this post? Because I care about this planet, and I’ve opened my eyes to the need for change. We all need to take a little more responsibility, and care more for the planet we live on. It’s not all about going completely vegan, or never buying something in plastic packaging again. It’s about doing things that will, however big or small, make a difference and help with the change we need to make.

Please don’t think ‘I’m not going to a difference’ or ‘how is me doing this ONE thing going to make any change?’. Doing SOMETHING is better than doing nothing at all. It would be easy for us to bury our head in the sand and accept that this is what the world is destined for, but I think that’s the lazy option. Join me in 2019 as I try to reduce my impact on the planet and share my tips along the way.

So, what can we all do to make a difference?

1. Reuse your carrier bags

2. Buy Reusable Containers

3. Reduce your meat/dairy consumption.

4. Plan your food shop.

5. Buy loose fruit veg instead of packaged.

6. Fast Fashion.

7. Beauty Products.

Above are just seven simple ways that you can help the environment and reduce your impact on the planet. If you have any other suggestions please leave them in the comments as I’d love some more tips and tricks. I’m definitely not an expert at any of these, but will be doing my best this year to challenge myself to use less plastic and create less waste.
