Three Things to Help Fight Climate Change

If you are wondering what you can do to help fight the climate crisis, here are three areas to focus on making changes…

Food – When it comes to food there are lots of things that you can do to be more environmentally friendly. Firstly, being aware of where your food comes from can help. What we should be doing is eating local food, that hasn’t travelled too far to be on our plate. As well as the fact that this food is local and we support local businesses and farms when we buy it, because it is fresher it is also better for us.

Reducing the meat that we eat in our diet also helps. Apart from the controversial treatments of animals who are mass farmed, meat production has a hugely detrimental effect on the planet compared to vegetables and fruits.

Materials – Many of the materials that we use for all manner of things are man made and bad for the environment during production as well as being difficult or impossible to recycle. Whether you are buying clothes or building a house extension, opt for natural materials – for example these Timberpride oak framed extensions, or natural clothing materials like cotton and linen.

Power and Fuel – A lot of the ways that we use to power our homes and our vehicles are damaging for the environment – but there are better options out there. Solar power is a great way to power the home, as well as air source heat pumps for heating. When it comes to travel, the best way to get around is walking or cycling, but if you need a car, look into electric vehicles.
