With only ten years left to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, world leaders have called for a decade of action. So, with 2020 now well and truly here, I thought I’d share a couple of ways in which you can contribute to achieving these goals and hopefully encourage you to make some sustainable resolutions of your own!
1. Beach Clean
Spend just 2 minutes picking up rubbish every time you leave the beach.
Reduce your carbon emissions by flying less and taking staycations.
3. Zero Waste Shampoo
Switch to zero waste shampoo bars. My favourite is the Montalbano bar from Lush!
4. Zero Waste Stores
Visit your local zero waste store at least once a week – find your nearest here.
5. Reusable Bottles
Stop using single use plastic and make this the year that you commit to reusables.
6. Grow Your Own
Reduce your food miles by growing your own fruit and vegetables.
7. Reusable Totes
Keep your tote on you at all times – you never know when you might do a spontaneous food shop!
8. Climate Strike
Make your voice heard by attending a climate strike like I did last year.
Do you have any other ideas or are you planning on making sustainable resolutions for 2020? If so I’d love to hear from you in the comments below!
