As some of you may be aware, Thursday is Earth Day. In recognition of this, this week, I’ve decided to dedicate a post each day with information I have found inspirational or helpful. I’m a big believer in small changes can make a big difference. Last year, we saw a glimmer of hope when all over the world we saw how the air cleaned up and we saw animals return to their natural habitats or roam freely, all in such a short period of time. So, for me, I want to take stock and see what differences I can make, they may be small but it doesn’t make them any less important.
I watched an interview with David Attenborough on BBC Breakfast last year, and he kept the message very simple. Something that we can all do anywhere in the world. He was asked; “If there is one choice to make today, what choice would you like people to make?”
Don’t waste anything.
Don’t waste electricity.
Don’t waste food.
Don’t waste power.
Just treat the natural world as though it’s precious, which it is. And don’t squander those bits of it we have control of.
I think this is a really humbling message. Something that each of us can get behind. Whilst there are many things in the modern world we can’t change or won’t give up. Avoiding waste is certainly something we can all easily get behind.

I’d love to know your thoughts. Have you any tips or tricks you have to avoid waste?
