We love hearing what small changes our community are doing in their everyday lives and inspire others to follow suit. India @with_india an Ocean Hero and Eco-Champion who inspires us with her love for our oceans and her conscious way of life. We would therefore like to share her 5 top small changes that will make you become more environmentally conscious.
ALWAYS CARRY THESE 3 ITEMS
Always carry a coffee mug ☕, reusable cutlery set 🍴 and a reusable water bottle 💧. If you have these three items with you, you don’t have to worry about using single use plastic when you are out and about eating.
FIND SECOND-HAND CLOTHING
This might be from charity shops or even being open to taking hand-me-downs from friends and family. This is important because the fashion industry accounts for so much water waste and adding toxins into our waterways, damaging wildlife and marine life too. 👗
WALK OR CYCLE INSTEAD OF TAKING THE CAR
Not only is this exercise great for your physical and mental wellbeing but its also going to get your carbon footprint down too. 🚶♂️
Look in our bathroom and kitchen and see if you can make any of the products in there. Bathroom and kitchens are filled with single use plastic. Have a google and see if you can make any of the items to cut down on that single-use plastic. 🧵

2 MINUTE LITTER PICK
The 2-minute-clean-up is an initiative encouraging you to collect litter, so wherever you are, walking on the beach, by a river, in the forest or even down the street. When you see litter just do a 2-minute litter pick, pick it up and put it in the bin, and you have done your good deed for the day! 🚮
