5 Little Ways To Protect Our Planet

We all have our own responsibility to preserve and protect the earth that we live on, but this needn’t be a daunting challenge. Something that keeps coming up in our conversations in the studio is how the smallest of acts can make a big difference. When discussing the small actions that we make as individuals, we gathered that so long as everyone knows how to help, bit by bit, we can all work together to make a positive change. 

Protecting our planet starts with you and we’re going to share our top 10 little ways to help reduce your impact.

Reuse and repurpose 

If you can’t reduce, then reuse. This small phrase has a lot of meaning. In order to protect our planet, we need to cut down on our consumption and start appreciating what we already have. You may have seen on our Instagram feed that we’re very passionate about repurposing materials and encourage our customers to repurpose our packaging to give it a new lease of life (you can see what we mean here). 

So, go and have a walk around your house and gather some items that have the potential to bring you joy again. It could be an item of clothing that needs a simple repair or some loose materials that could be transformed into a cushion cover, you’ll be surprised at what you can do.

Use your voice

Remember that your voice matters. We have access to platforms and social media where your voice can be reached by thousands of people, so use it. Share your knowledge and educate those around you on how they can help too. After all, together we are stronger.

Educate

When you further your own knowledge, you’ll feel more prepared to have those conversations with family and friends to help make sense of the issues facing our planet. We have the world at our fingertips, so listen to the news, keep on top of political conversations and learn from all of the incredible influential figures of this generation.

Watch what you buy

Buy less, choose well and make it last. What we’re trying to say is, where you can, choose to buy sustainably. We know that this isn’t always possible, but try to ask yourself, do I really need this? And can I find a more sustainable option? 

When purchasing clothes for example, before opting to check-out, delve a little deeper and see if you can find out about the process, the origin of the materials and how the garment was made. If you can’t tick all of those boxes, it may be worth looking for an alternative.

Reduce your waste

This may seem like an obvious point, but it is one of the most crucial if we’re to make any change at all. The truth is every product we buy has some sort of environmental footprint and could end up in landfill. But don’t let this fact intimidate you because we have some simple tips to cut down your waste. It’s as straight-forward as eating up leftovers or composting to lessen food waste, recycling correctly, reusing what you can and attempting to limit the packaging you opt for.

If you adopt even one of these pieces of advice, it’s a step in the right direction. It’s all about your mindset and every little step helps. We’d love to hear how you do your bit to help our planet - let us know on socials!
