Today I have prepared for you something very special: an interview with environmentalist, writer, and mother Lindsay Coulter, about eco anxiety and eco grief. I’m hoping that you find it useful in your own climate activism.
I’m excited about this post, and I hope you like it! I’ve compiled 20 ways to take your environmentally friendly lifestyle to the next level. So, if you’ve been making Zero Waste swaps and want to do a bit more, this post is for you! If you’re already doing lots in your community, you may wish to share this post with your friends.
The first “R” is “refuse” but many people—myself included!—often find it challenging to say no. If you’re new to the idea of Zero Waste and struggle with the thought of declining single-use plastic, free promotional items, or other unwanted items, you may find these tips helpful. If you’re a seasoned pro, you may wish to share these ideas with your friends who are just starting out.
