Protecting the planet starts

with you

The need for urgent and more rigorous action against climate change is widely acknowledged. Therefore, saving the planet is no longer seen as a trend followed solely by the younger generation, but is an undeniable necessity for the future of our planet and for generations to come.

And time is running out. 

Climate change

The concentration of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere is the highest it has been in three million years. Ice caps are melting, sea levels are rising and extreme weather continues to wreck millions of lives. Up to one million species are becoming extinct because of climate change.

The amazon rainforest is currently still ablaze, causing catastrophic damage to what many people refer to as ‘the earth’s lungs’.

Some people may argue that individuals do not have the power to make a difference, putting the responsibility onto large business’. However, the UK’s 29 million homes accounted for 14% of total emissions between 2016-2017.

Certainly, we all have the opportunity and responsibility to do our bit. 

The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that

someone else will save it.

Signs of the times

Inspired by 16 year old, Greta Thunberg, countries across the world have created a global movement, ‘Friday’s for Future’, striking for climate action. Using placards with powerful messages to highlight the urgency for climate action, the strikes demand that world leaders start to take the necessary action to protect the planet.

After all, history shows us that when enough people demand change, those in power have to act.

Make your voice count.

The Blue Planet effect

The UK was recently blown away by the awareness raised by Blue Planet. We collectively watched in horror, as sea birds and animals digested plastic, devastatingly dying as a result. Significantly, 88% of people say that they changed their lifestyle as a result of watching Blue Planet. 

Glastonbury 2019 welcomed David Attenborough to the stage to deliver a powerful speech, as the festival went plastic-free for the first year. It is estimated that 60% of people now carry a reusable water bottle.

From April 2020, plastic straws, cotton buds and drink stirrers will be banned in England. Supermarkets and restaurants have also recognised the need for urgent action, using less plastic packaging and rewarding those who bring reusable cups and bags whilst shopping.

More and more people are recognising the need for change.

Transport emissions

Transport is the most polluting sector in the UK. Emissions must fall by 44% by 2030 to keep the UK on track to meet its climate goals.

Sales of electric vehicles have doubled in the past year in the UK and it is forecast that by 2040, 55% of all new car sales globally will be electric vehicles.

Renewable energies, like solar PV, have a big part to play as society adapts. Particularly as more people will be charging at home, the National Grid will be under pressure during mass evening switch on’s.

Charging an electric car with solar energy is free and convenient. Ultimately, homeowners will be able to take back control from the Big 6 and power homes and electric cars with clean, green energy.

One step at a time

You don’t have to completely follow a vegan diet. You don’t have to feel guilty about your holidays abroad. You can’t always go a whole day or week without single-use plastic. But collectively, small changes make a monumental difference. Let’s act boldly and promote change.

We still have time to change the end of this story.
