Recently I have been reading several surveys about what people would change about their lifestyle in order ‘to save the planet’. These were quite interesting and I wondered what my readers would change.
For myself there are some small things I could do but I don’t have a car and I no longer fly to other areas or countries so that limits what I can do in that area. I try to buy organic or fair trade clothes when I can. I try to eat organic food or food that is not imported from other countries. I recycle as much as I can and collect blister packs to give to my son who takes them to Superdrug for recycling. I buy shampoos and soaps that are made from natural ingredients and scent free, I knit and sew some of the things I need and I often ‘undo’ old knitted garments and use the wool to knit something else. I give clothes I no longer wear and other items I no longer use to charity shops and organisations. I like to support wildlife trusts and spend time in nature reserves which is good for my mental health.
So what else can I do? I am sure you will all think of things I can do and things that you could do. I would love to read your thoughts on this so please respond and comment.
