1 Buy local and seasonal
If you don’t, then you are only adding to the unsustainable problem of mass industry. By supporting your community, local economies will grow and create more opportunities for jobs and new business. Seasonal eating will also improve quality of soils and increase nutrition of fruit and veg.
Time on your hands? Why not give some of your time to support others. Volunteering is not just about helping out in a charity store or residential home, it can be about mentoring, sharing knowledge, taking time and in giving our time and understanding we will help empower others and enable them to achieve their full potential.
3 Pay it forward
Buy presents that make a world of difference to the lives of others. Don’t just bin it! Reuse, recycle, refurbish, repurpose, donate or pay it forward.
4 Adopt an endangered animal
According to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) if we are not careful, we risk losing two-thirds of all animal species on the planet in the next 10 years.
