Living life more sustainably in 2021
The leaves are changing. Christmas is around the corner. Not long now and 2020 will finally be over. It's probably safe to say 2020 will be remembered in history. It's probably also safe to say those of us who lived through it will be happy to forget it.
So much has changed and will probably stay changed forever. Covid 19 has been a truly global crisis. It has caused countries and continents across the world to take drastic action in order to protect their citizens. But of course, unfortunately Covid is not the only global crisis threatening humans across the world. The Environmental Crisis is arguably a much bigger threat not only to human life but to all living things.
The warnings and predictions scientists have been issuing for decades are now playing out for real. For many 2020 has been hard and people have suffered. However if climate change is allowed to carry on this trajectory 2020 will seem like a walk in the park.
The sheer scale of climate change makes it hard to think where the hell to start when it comes to making a difference. It is true that the issues that face us are huge. But it is also true that if we all start to make changes in our lives we can help solve this problem.
Just Think Eco was founded on the idea that we all need to make a change. One of the most simple ways you can start making a more positive impact on the planet is by changing your buying habits. With Christmas on its way it is vital we do not have another year with 3 million extra tonnes of waste. The difference it would make if everyone were to buy eco friendly and sustainable presents this year would be huge.
This Christmas and in the years ahead Just Think Eco are committed to providing customers with a range of eco friendly, sustainable and ethically sourced products. The companies we have found to work with are all working in new and innovative ways to cause less of a negative impact on the planet. By using these alternative products you too can start making less of a negative impact.
Just Think Eco and many of the companies we work with are also supporting a wide range of charities dedicated to improving the planet in which we live. From planting trees to cleaning the ocean.
