Lets look at the Break Down

Use Your Voice

Speak up! If you notice your friends throwing rubbish on the ground, call them out! If you notice your friends throwing non recyclables in the recycling bin, inform them, if you notice anything you feel is wrong, speak up! it’s understandable to not want to be the nagging annoying friend but information is power and if you’re thinking it, someone else probably is too. Don’t be afraid to use your voice.

Be Informed

If you don’t like reading, watch documentaries. They’re made to be interesting and attain viewer attention so once you start watching, it won’t be a chore. Knowledge is power and although the facts can be hard to swollen, the reality of the situation we’re in is much more frightening. Here’s a clip to get you started.

Travel responsibly

Why not incorporate your exercise into your travel and either walk or cycle to work? Here’s another idea, avoid gas money and awkward parking and get the bus. You could even use this time to catch up on some reading or listening.

Eat Sustainably

Once you become informed on where your food comes from, the motivating factor for this one won’t be hard. We suggest sourcing meat from your local butcher or of course, going vegan. Just try and stay away from the avocados. For more information on foods that are bad for the environment, check out GlobalCitizen.org
