6 ways to save the earth

Updated: Apr 13, 2020

The 2020's are here. It's a new decade. And it's a decade that is pivotal in the human story - what we do in these next few years really matter (not that it didn't before, but this is important). We have a limited amount of time to halt climate change, to avoid the worst and to ensure the sustainability of life on earth.

To make that possible we all have to take action. And small actions like avoiding plastic straws or bringing your own bags to the supermarket are not enough to achieve this. Don't get me wrong I really believe in small everyday actions (if you don't believe me read this), but we're at a point now where we all need to be doing more to really make a difference. It's vital.

So to welcome in the new decade I've put together a list of some of the most impactful things we can all do to save the earth 🌍.

6 ways to save the earth

I've kept this short and snappy. If you want more detail then click the links associated with each point or holla at me and we can chat about it! 🙋🏼‍♀️

1. Switch your energy - supply your home with green energy and renewable gas. For a list check out The Switch.

2. Eat less meat - Meat free Mondays, Veganuary, however you do it if you can reduce your meat intake you'll make a big difference! More on this here.

3. Boycott fast fashion - swap, share, rent, repair, shop second hand or vintage, choose ethical, fairtrade and sustainable. More on this here.

4. Fly less - this one is pretty obvious, flying has a huge carbon footprint. And when you do fly, offset the CO2 (more on this here).

5. Grow plants - houseplants, herbs, garden plants, trees. They do us and the earth good by purifying the air, trapping CO2 and making us happy.

6. Cut out single-use plastic - whether it's straws and plastic bags, or pasta packets, or tampons it all adds up. How much can you reduce this year?

Which of these are you going to start with as the new decade begins? Let me know in the comments below!

Here's to a wonderful new year, full of greenness 🌿, love and joy 🤗.

Love, Roxy.
