Climate Change

The time to act is now

Our planet are in trouble

The effects of pollution and global warming have never been so visible or measurable and therefore is climate change one of the most urgent and complex challenges of our time.

The Climate Crisis – A Race We Can Win

According to UN (United Nations) the Climate change is the defining crisis of our time and it is happening even more quickly than we feared. But we are far from powerless in the face of this global threat.

planetary costs

People who live in the rich countries – buy more, fly more and use  more energy than people who live in the poor countries. All the things we buy – from clothes to food to electronics and more – have their own planetary costs.

No corner of the globe is immune from the devastating consequences of climate change.

Rising temperatures are fueling environmental degradation, natural disasters, weather extremes, food and water insecurity, economic disruption, conflict, and terrorism. Sea levels are rising, the Arctic is melting, coral reefs are dying, oceans are acidifying, and forests are burning. It is clear that business as usual is not good enough. As the infinite cost of climate change reaches irreversible highs, now is the time for bold collective action.

We can all do something. Here are 5 simple ways you can help reduce your impact, and help in the fight against climate change.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle – these three ‘R’ words are an important part of sustainable living.

We are all aware that we are not the last generation on earth, therefore we must adapt our behavior to that fact.

mindful shopping habits

We can all do more to be more conscious about what we buy, and where we buy it from. Buying less will save you money, reduce waste and improve your environmental footprint. Choose mindful shopping habits based on their impact on the environment. Living a less consumerist lifestyle can benefit you and our planet.

EAT SUSTAINABLY

Farming animals for meat and dairy requires space and huge inputs of water and feed. And producing meat creates vastly more carbon dioxide than plants such as vegetables, grains and legumes.

Moving away from a meat-dominated diet towards a more plant-based diet can lower your impact on the environment. 

TRAVEL RESPONSIBLY

Tourism contributes to climate change, and are responsible for 8% of the world’s carbon emissions. As more and more people travel each year, this footprint is only growing.

When thinking about how to reduce our individual carbon footprints, one of the simplest ways to cut back on emissions is to fly less often.

As a general rule, the shorter the distance from home you travel, the lower your carbon footprint.

Minimize driving

We cannot stop global warming without reducing private driving.

For many people, a large part of their direct emissions are created by using their car. One of the most common uses of a person’s car is to get to work. You can drive less by using public transportation, carpooling, biking or walking instead of your car. This will make enormous reductions in the amount of emissions you cause everyday.

The scale of the challenges facing our planet can seem daunting, but we can all do something.

How to Save our planet

As consumers in the rich countries, we have a important role to play in reducing carbon-intensive activity. We can turn our thermostats down, buy local food, eat less meat, fly less, use less plastic and walk and cycle more, just to mention some of our options.

Plant-based diet can fight climate change

According to BBC News could more people be fed using less land if individuals cut down on eating meat.

A major report on land use and climate change, to which the BBC refers, says that the West's high consumption of meat and dairy products is fuelling global warming. You can read the full article here
