Green Steve Supports Climate Week

image source This week sees the second coming of Climate Week, designed to inspire people and businesses to act on climate change and contribute to a more sustainable future.

In 2011, around half a million people went along to one of the 3,000 events organised by schools, charities and businesses. This year they hope to replicate and even exceed that amazing number as ideas and innovations big and small are showcased to give people a sense of what they can do to get involved.

Getting Involved

If you want to be a part of Climate Week then why not find out where your nearest event is taking place – you can do so by searching here.

These events might range from an environmental pub quiz to the clothes recycling scheme at one of the 16 participating H&M stores where you’ll also get a £5 voucher to use on your next purchase.

If you are interested in sustainable supermarkets or would like to know how to become a more waste conscious shopper, you might like to take a green tour around one of 300 Tesco stores.

Eat Green

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you will know that I am making an effort to reduce the carbon footprint of the food I eat. I have already switched to oat milk and olive spread as they generate far lower emissions than mainstream dairy choices, and I am trying to reduce the amount of meat, particularly red meat, that I eat.

Climate Week is also trying to encourage a lower carbon diet and you can find recipes from people such as Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and Levi Roots on their website.

I myself, will be trying to go the whole week with just chicken or fish with my meals along with a number of veggie-only dishes.

Dress Green In Any Colour

Living a sustainable life needn’t only be reserved for food, transport and the home; we spend a lot of money on clothes in this country and putting this money to good use by supporting one of the many eco-conscious labels is just one way to get the most out of what we wear.

Climate Week also offer some good tips on their ‘be sustainable, be stylish’ section and they will be sharing more green fashion links through Facebook and Twitter so make sure you like and follow them.

So how are you celebrating Climate Week? Leave a comment below and let everyone know the difference that you are going to be making.
