Vote with your purse (or wallet) and use your buying power to deliver a strong message to companies. Choosing products that are made from or contain fairly sourced ingredients ensures everybody benefits. You still get high-quality products and marginalised communities get a fair deal and a sustainable income that enables them to invest in their future and that of their families. It’s a win win! Why not make the swap with your regular chocolate bar, bananas, coffee, soap or body moisturiser?
Express your creativity and transform your empty packaging and unwanted clothing into reusable items to be loved once more. When you upcycle you remove items from the global garbage stream, without the need of energy or water to break down the materials, just your own creativity and a little bit of elbow grease! Pretty much anything can be upcycled; plastic bottles into earrings, wine bottles into candlestick holders, cans into home décor as well as refashioning old jeans and t-shirts.
By giving your time or skills to help other people and local charitable organisations you can help strengthen the community and environment in which you live, as well as finding it enormously rewarding! To find out about volunteering projects in the UK visit do-it.org or your local authorities website. You can make a real difference – every person counts!
