Promote sustainable living

Help spread the word about actions we can all take to reduce our impact on the environment.

It is easy to feel that you’re the only one trying to live sustainably, but as you talk to more people, you’ll find that many of us are on the same path. We are all teachers and we are all learners, so share what you know with others and you might just be rewarded by discovering something new yourself!

The more we promote sustainable living, the easier it will be to build sustainable communities.

How to do it now!

Live a sustainable life
Walk before you talk, hypocrisy is a bad look.

Do what you can, when you can
Challenge yourself to do one extra sustainable action each week. This Guide has plenty of ideas to get you started.

Become involved
Local action groups are working towards improving the environment and sustainability. Stay informed about what your local community has on offer.

Spread the word
The more discussions, arguments and gentle cajoling we engage in the better. So do the actions to move yourself toward sustainability and then encourage others.
