We no longer have time to wait for Industry and Government to act on the climate crisis. We ALL need to act and with people and households being the end users of 70% of emissions in the UK, it really does matter what we do as individuals.
Do you ever struggle with what would be the best action for you to take in your own life? The start of a new year is a great time to start looking at making positive changes in your lifestyle.
If we can we want to support you with the tools to be able to understand what your current impact is on the planet, and what actions you can take to reduce it. As it will look different for everyone, depending on factors like your budget and living circumstances.
For over a year now we have been partnering with Giki to help us bring this community a tool to understand their own impact, find ways to reduce it, and see what we are all achieving together as a community. We currently have 112 members of the community working together to reduce our impacts, it would be great for more of us to join and those in the tool to come back and take another step for the planet!
Giki has over 150 steps for every lifestyle and budget. And the best bit is that half of these steps also save money! From small steps such as making sure we only boil the water that we need to larger steps like enjoying a more plant based diet, there is something for everyone.
To help give you the extra motivation we are offering for anyone who joins our Giki account from now until the end of Jan 23 we will enter you into a raffle (drawn at the end of Jan 23) to win a hamper of sustainable goodies.
All you need to do is sign up with this link and take a step, or if you already a member then come back in and take a step! We hope you will find it as useful as we do.
If you have already joined the account then January is a great time to go in and update your footprint for the year ahead. Watch this space also we will be running a challenge in February to take steps to reduce our Food Footprints!
