Going Green #32 - October 2019

Welcome to Going Green. This is the place to promote all your green, sustainable, environmental, seasonal, local, organic, fair trade, ethical etc posts ... basically any post that helps or inspires readers to preserve and improve our beautiful world. If you are not sure what subjects would be good or need some ideas have a look here where you'll find all the details about the linky here: Going Green Linky.

Climate Strikes

First we had The Blue Planet Effect and then we had the global climate strikes on September 20th 2019.  Awareness that we absolutely have to changes our ways and we have to do it urgently is gathering momentum and we need to keep it going.  To that end I have linked up 2 posts that show what we can all do right now, one aimed at everyone and one aimed specifically at the section of our population who stand to gain most from the changes - children.

I would also urge you to do some reading.  I am part way through the book "There is No Planet B" by Mike Berners-Lee which outlines where we are now and what we have to do mitigate the negative knock-on effect of our combined actions.  In part in makes for depressing reading but it is also a very positive book, showing that it is entirely achievable to stop increased levels in atmospheric CO2 without losing our current standard of living.

My picks from Going Green September 2019

Thank you to everyone who linked up in September - these were 3 of my favourite posts:

  • Isabel at Sustainable Responsible Living gave us a range of healthy sweet snacks without plastic packaging.
raw brownies, healthy snacks, recipes

  • Annette from Four Acorns wrote about something that I suspect we all suffer from - Climate Anxiety and how she deals with it.

  • And finally Emma from Small Footprints Big Adventures gave a very detailed account of which are the best shopping/grocery bags to use. Interesting stuff and not always what you would have expected. 
Choosing reusable bags can be confusing!

  1. I can't seem to add a link - I click add link and it takes me straight to logging in to verify your link without giving me anywhere to add the URL. Any ideas? I've tried on phone and on PC.

  2. Great reads, I especially enjoyed the Lorna Gold interview.

  3. I try to do my bit but having read this there are certainly other things I can start doing now x

  4. Aah! Commenting late. Where did October go?
