5 resolutions for a more sustainable 2020
Easy ways to help the environment this year
The new year is a great time to set some environmentally friendly habits. Here are some ideas to get you started.
Ditch fast fashion
In the UK an average of 350,000 tonnes of clothes go to landfill every year. Instead of throwing clothes away, why not arrange a clothes swap party with your friends? Or learn how to mend or upcycle anything that is tired or broken.
Avoid single-use plastic
We use 7.7 billion plastic bottles in the UK every year. Make your Plastic Promise to carry a reusable one instead.
Make more journeys on foot. A brisk 10-minute walk has lots of great benefits so you can improve your health while improving the planet’s health too!
Switch to eco-friendly products
With so many eco-friendly products on the market, it’s easy to swap everyday items for ones that are better for the planet. Why not try a natural deodorant? Or swap your household cleaning sprays to eco-friendly ones? Or try sustainable sanitary products?
Include more plant-based meals
It’s easier than ever to reduce your intake of meat or give up entirely. Did you know that even one day a week of not eating meat has a significant environmental benefit?
