Avoid special trips to the supermarket. Try to have your food delivered to your home. Delivery avoids impulse buying which is often wasteful and can reduce local air pollution.
In the week of the start of a global Climate Strike intended to raise awareness that life cannot go on as it has before, our Eco Tip highlights that many small changes are needed to effect great global change. We must remember that in making these small changes we are not ‘fixing the problem’. Only by coordinated and urgent action across society can we begin to amend for the wrongs that have been done to the earth.
The great changes we are wreaking in the ecosystems of the earth are not only going to affect our children. They will affect almost all who live today. Their malign effects are beginning to be seen in the increasing frequency of adverse weather events. Global migrations of people with needs for refuge and just treatment are in part driven by Global Heating.
