Make a small change
The climate emergency can feel overwhelming. Climate anxiety is now a real issue that many people are dealing with. You may feel like any lifestyle changes you make won't help climate change, but remember that small changes can make a big difference if done by enough people.
Taking individual actions is known to help with climate anxiety as it channels your energy into doing something meaningful. Small changes can lead to bigger ones, and they often inspire others!
However, everyone's circumstances are different, and while some changes suit one person, they may not work for others. This section suggests ways you can help, along with some tools and advice so you can decide what small changes work best for you.
Some other ideas can be found in the BBC article 39 Ways to Save the Planet.
The Great Collaboration, a local partnership between The Herefordshire Green Network and Caplor Horizons with funding from the MCS Charitable Foundation have also put together a great list of actions that are applicable to everyday life and will give you some further inspiration on the changes you can make to reduce your carbon footprint. These cover the areas of Buildings, Transport, Food and Waste, Land Use, Energy, Money and Use Your Voice.
