Given the option to do nothing or do something, many are choosing to do nothing. There is so much lethargy about making greener choices and the biggest blocker is not money, but laziness. So how do we make a difference in an environment that refuses to change?
Well, the simplest answer is to “be the change you want to see”. That’s the hard part if you have no-one showing you what to do next and you are also suffering from lethargy.
Here’s three tips to help you remember:
1. Set reminders on your phone about your environmental goals so that it remains a focal point in your life
2. Set yourself up to succeed by planning your day and strategising how you will implement your Green goals. This could mean putting reusable bags in the car the night before you go shopping or creating a compost bowl in the kitchen that is emptied out every day.
3. Look for eco-friendly products and buy them in bulk so that you don’t have to make spontaneous decisions that are non-eco-friendly.
