Let's Tackle Climate Change Together

Today marks the start of the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference and it is something we would love each and every one of you to get behind with us. 

COP (Conference of the Parties) is considered to be the world’s best last chance to get runaway climate change under control. For almost three decades, the United Nations has been bringing together almost every country in the world in an attempt to reach an agreement on how to tackle climate change.

In preparation for COP26, world leaders will arrive in Scotland this week alongside thousands of negotiators, businesses, government representatives, and citizens for twelve days of in-depth talks. 

We are passionate about raising awareness on how we all, as individuals, can support climate change in some way. It’s unrealistic for each and every one of us to be able to take all the right steps to combat this issue. However, we believe every step counts, whether it be big or small. 

Here are some simple ways you can help towards climate change. After all, a lot of the time, being able to heal the planet starts with how we live our lives at home - 

First of all, shout about it!

The best thing you can do to get started is to spread the word. Talk to your friends and family about it, share your thoughts on social media, and more importantly try to make sure that your elected officials are seeing what you think too.

Use energy-efficient appliances

When shopping for appliances such as refrigerators, washing machines, and tumble dryers; look for the Energy Star label for an indication on which are the most efficient. 

Power your home with renewable energy

Choose an energy company that generates at the very least half of its power from wind or solar. Alternatively, if this isn’t possible, take a look at your electricity bill to find out other ways to support renewable sources. 

Ensure you eat the food that you buy 

We would all be unpleasantly surprised to discover how much household food actually goes to waste. That’s why, when you your weekly food shop, it’s a great idea to plan your meals or write a shopping list of the stuff you really do need and will definitely use.

Reducing how much meat we buy and intake also has a significant impact on climate change. David Attenborough has warned us already in the documentaryA Life On Our Planet, “The planet can’t support billions of meat-eaters. If we all ate only plants, we’d need only half the land we use at the moment."

Plus, with the help of our handy beeswax wraps and bags, you can keep any leftovers you do have fresher for longer to ensure nothing goes to waste!

Rethink your method of transport

If you can walk there, we actively encourage you to do so. Living in walkable cities or towns with good quality public transportation reduces the need for driving, which means less money spent on fuel, and as a result less pollution in the air.
