It’s 2021 and we are all hoping for a better year on so many levels than the one we just left behind. It might be that you are ready for your first 2021 challenge to reduce your environmental footprint, or you just want to find some good new small changes to take you further on your environmental journey.
Here are a few small changes that are great for beginners (or anyone looking to make a positive impact!)
Starting your journey with small changes is the way to succeed on your environmental and plastic footprint reduction journey. Starting with small everyday changes will allow you to champion them and want to do more rather than overwhelming yourself with large changes too soon.
Simple first changes can be to remove your single use everyday items, water bottles, coffee/tea take-way cup, disposable grocery and produce bags etc. and instead investing in reusable versions. That will not only get you in the right frame of mind but save a lot of single use material that is so unnecessary and harming to our planet.
Go through one room at a time in your home and start by identifying the items which are either single use or made of plastic. Then try to find alternatives that lowers your environmental footprint.
In order to identify the better alternatives, its important that you understand the implication of what environmental impact you currently have, what the impact is of different materials/choices and where you can make real impact.
We LOVE SHARING these small changes with our community and HERE are other fantastic #smallchanges tips in our series for you to check out.
