Making lifestyle changes to become more sustainable can feel overwhelming. The more you research, the more you discover that you need to change. It really is a mine-field! Enough to put off even the most determined of eco-warriors.
Do not despair, however! Recently I came across this plan, courtesy of sustainablestalbans.org, and found it a really useful place to start. Begin with small steps, then bigger until you are a Sustainability Hero.
A few weeks ago we launched the daily eco-challenge; a series of tips and suggestions of how to make, some small, some big, changes to your life-style to make it more sustainable. You may already be doing many of these? More will follow soon.
Becoming a Sustainability Hero takes time and effort. Aside from providing guidance on the changes you can make as family and an individual, we hope to make High Barnet more sustainability accessible. We will keep you updated, and hope that as shops, restaurants and other establishments take the leap to make their products, business and services more sustainable, you will support and encourage them, and help spread the word.
Coming Soon: a breakdown of some of the areas from the above plan, along with helpful hints, tips and suggestions on how to succeed. In the meantime please see our blog for more advice on becoming a Sustainability Hero. Our Facebook and Instagram pages also have plenty of ideas and encouragement. See links below. They are also a great place to connect with like-minded locals who are trying to make a difference, as well as to share your trials and tribulations.
If you are a local business, and would like some advice on making your services and practices sustainable, please get in touch. We would love to work with you!
