Covid-19 has taken a great toll on everyone around the world. But have we forgotten about the other global crisis? We are at a standstill. Climate change is not!
What can you do?
There are so many different ways you can fight climate change, even when in a pandemic. Read on to find out how!
The next time you go on a walk, bring a trash bag with you. It's likely you'll find some trash that someone else has carelessly thrown out. You'll help keep nature clean and healthy!
Say 'nah' to plastic
Instead of grabbing the first thing you see, look for loose produce. This reduces your plastic consumption and waste production. If you're shopping online, some places offer 'no carrier bags' so keep an eye out for that!
Support small businesses
They need our help! And they're a lot more sustainable for our economy and planet. Instead of giving money to companies that have plenty, give it to everyone else!
When shops open up again, don't go on a shopping spree! Yes, buy yourself a special Covid gift; it's been a crazy year. Other than that, think to yourself... Do I need it? Can I get it second-hand? Can I make it? Is there an alternative?
Soak in Mother Nature
Step outside, feel the sunshine, jump in rain puddles, roll in snow, smell the flowers, climb a tree, spot the squirrels, hear the birds! There are so many things to do in nature, all of which help you physically and mentally. Take it all in. Then share your joy and love for nature with others!
