My goal in 2019 was to work towards living a more sustainable life but it can be hard to know where to start. I wanted to share what I've been working on in case it inspires anyone else - every bit we do helps!
"We don't need a handful of people doing zero waste perfectly. We need millions of people doing it imperfectly."
1. I stopped eating meat.
Ok so, this might not be that easy for everyone. But, meat (and other animal products) is arguably the best thing you can avoid to help the planet - even if it's only a few nights a week. And that's how I got started this year. I made it my goal to have certain days where I ate plant-based meals (a.k.a Meatless Mondays).
As of August this year I've been able to cut meat out altogether and become vegetarian. I've also made it a goal of mine to avoid as many animal products as possible in the future. But - that's not going to be everyone's goal. And that's ok. Simply reducing the amount of meat consumed in a week can have a huge impact (your body will thank you too!).
