sustainable actions to take
I adopt a simple and restrained way of life: I try as much as possible to be satisfied with what is necessary; I avoid using products and/or services which I can do without; I favour the natural over the artificial; etc. In this way I increase my capacity to be satisfied with little and I also have a positive impact on my environment.
I am joining or planning to set up a gardening/farming group within my circle. The creation of social links and growing of natural crops have a positive impact on my social life, my health and my environment.
Water, electricity, gas, fuel … we use energy and resources on a daily basis. By making a habit of using the minimum of energy and resources possible, I avoid unnecessary excess consumption of them and thus have a positive impact on my environment and those around me.
I take care to invest in natural financial products which will not have a negative impact on man or nature. I avoid financial products deriving from working conditions harmful to man or not complying with human rights. I also avoid financial products that exploit nature in a non-sustainable way.
By learning how to preserve food for longer, I avoid wasting food, which represents a significant percentage of household waste. Taking on the challenge of combating waste means combating global hunger, reducing the impact of food on the environment, helping the most impoverished, optimising agriculture, etc.
Self-sufficiency, whether in energy or food, is an excellent way of limiting the pollution associated with the production, transport, storage and preservation of energy and produce. Moreover, by increasing my self-sufficiency, I save a significant amount of money, as I become my own energy and food supplier.
I favour green modes of transportWhen I need to travel using motorised means of transport, I always opt first for green modes of transport. These modes of transport have a positive impact on the environment, the use of resources and environmental pollution as they are less polluting and use less energy than conventional means of transport.
Consuming less meat and fish is not only better for my health but also has an impact on greenhouse gas emission, deforestation, waste and water pollution.
I do not consume meat, whether from terrestrial animals (birds, insects, molluscs, cattle, etc.), or from marine animals (fish, seafood, shellfish, marine mammals, etc.).
