      I’m quite scared to be honest – we really need to act now to reduce the amount of greenhouse gas emissions that we release, but unfortunately our politicians don’t seem to think so!

      Luckily, there are lots of things an average person can do to protect the environment. One of the best things you can do is to reduce the amount of resources we consume – particularly things like plastic (which is made from fossil fuels). We should also eat less meat – fertilisers used to grow pasture also require a lot of fossil fuels to produce. Walking, cycling or taking public transport whenever we can will help a lot too!
