Calculate your carbon footprint with the WWF and learn how you can save energy.
Recycle & reuse
Make sure you’re recycling by putting your rubbish in the correct bins. Also, try to reuse products and items as many times as possible before binning them to reduce waste.
Eat less meat
The meat industry is one of the biggest contributors to climate change, and by changing your diet you can reduce your impact on the climate crisis.
Use less water
You can save water in your home by making some small changes, why not take a shower instead of a bath?
Grow your own
By growing your own fruit and veg you can ensure that you are not contributing to pesticides or fossil fuels that are used when transporting the food to supermarkets. It’s also very fun! Visit us at Grow Speke to find out more on how you can start living off the land.
By making sure your food scraps are composted your reducing the massive amounts of food waste that end up in landfill. If you haven’t got a compost bin, then bring your waste to Grow Speke’s community compost bin.
