What we can do to help the environment

The environment is very important to us, so what can we do to help? There are many ways to get involved to help tackle climate change. Some are as simple as recycling a plastic bottle, whilst others would be to stop burning fossil fuels. Whoever you are, business or individual, there's a role for you. We have six tips on what you can do day to day to make a difference. 

Our first tip is to speak up. Use your voice to share these tips with others and spread the word. 

Tip number two is to reduce your waste. Recycle what you can to cut down on how much you waste. This could include leftover food from last nights dinner or using a tin can as a plant pot. 

Tip number three is to re-use items to save resources and energy that is used to make new ones. This will also save you money. 

Tip number four is not supporting fast fashion. Shop upcycled clothes rather than buying new ones. 

Tip number five is to shop locally and shop organically. Support your local businesses, especially during this time smaller businesses are struggling and need your support. This doesn't mean you need to spend money to show your support, a share or like of their website or social media goes a long way. 

Tip number six is to eat sustainably. Cut down on your meat consumption as there is massive forest loss for the expansion of agriculture land.  

Havant Friends Of The Earth are an organisation local to us. They campaign on local and national environmental issues that affect the borough of Havant and east Hampshire. Every month they produce a newsletter containing their goals and achievements for the month and year. They have many links to other climate action pages and campaigns you can sign. You will also find many resources and green living blogs on their website.
