Minimising my environmental impact

The climate crisis has me bummed out. It feels like everyone agrees we need to make changes, but no one wants to sacrifice for it. Here are my first steps.

  1. Cycle to shops to buy things rather than having them packaged and shipped to my home.
  2. Donate and give away old things rather than throw them out.
  3. Further reduce meat consumption, and eliminate beef consumption.
  4. Eliminate food waste by buying smaller quantities more often.
  5. Repair broken things rather than replace them, even if it costs the same.
  6. Hire electric cars over petrol cars, even if it’s less convenient.
