I wondered if some of my readers might consider posts on environmental issues to be a bit off topic but I’d like to take this opportunity to reassure you that the link between veganism and environmental issues to be far from tenuous.
After all, there is little point in campaigning for freedom for farm animals if we neglect to worry about the plight of the polar bear due to melting ice caps, the destruction of hedgerows and woodland areas which kills many individuals and puts entire species at risk, the decline of the bee, without whom we’re all royally screwed!
It’s all connected.
Obviously eating a plant based diet is an important step in reducing your carbon footprint but there are always other things that we can change to help even further. Some are harder to achieve (we can’t all afford solar panels after all), but there are many tips and ideas out there for being a little greener without compromising our comfort, our vanity or appetites.
I’m going to share ideas as I find them and I’d love it if you’d like to share some of your green tips too.
