Resolutions
New Year
As another year comes to an end, it's clear to see the rapid changes that the Earth's going through in terms of climate changes-especially due to human activities.

However, the start of the new year is the perfect opportunity to change your lifestyle habits in order to make a difference to our health and the wellbeing on the planet.

Over the next two blogs, we're giving you a few things you can do to make a change.
 
1. Bring your own shopping bags
 
By shopping with reusable bags, you're helping in reducing consumption of plastic, preventing deforestation and lessening the dependence on fossil fuels.
 
2. Cook from scratch
 
Processed, packaged, ready-made meals are the product of wasted energy, oil, water and cause deforestation. Batch cooking and meal planning can make cooking from scratch much easier.
 
3. Eat organic where possible
 
Although organic produce may be more expensive, this is money well spent. The food you buy will be more nutritious and won't be pumped with GMOs and pesticides. Also, you can be sure that your food was produced in a way that protected the ecosystem it was grown in.
 
4. Eat less and better meat
 
The extremely industrialised way in which livestock is raised is inhumane, unhealthy and unsustainable for our planet. This year, attempt to eat clean, grass-fed meat, dairy and eggs wherever possible and you'll be making a huge difference for small farmers and the environment.
 
5. End fast fashion
 
Stores with cheap clothing may seem too good to be true because they are. In order to meet fashion demands, fertile land is depleted in order to grow GMO cotton. Cheap fashion also uses highly toxic fabrics and dyes, which use tons of fossil fuels. Opt for timeless styles that won't go out of fashion, high-quality materials and domestically made garments.
 
Here are just a few things you can do to make a difference to your health and the well-being of the planet in the new year. Tune in to our next blog for more tips.
