  1. The UK is already behind in their environmental targets, so what could an exit from Europe do to our environment credentials? Some of the EU’s biggest achievements are in the field of environmental conservation, with stringent targets placed on things like recycling and renewable energy. It remains to be seen if the UK’s exit from the EU will simply allow them to take the easy way out and ease up on their targets. Farming and Fishing Two of the the most vocal groups throughout the Brexit campaign were farmers and fishermen. The fishermen had hoped that a vote to leave would m
  2. I LOVE natural and green cleaners. I have a biodegradable spray cleaner that smells like pomegranate for the kitchen and try to use natural cleaners like apple cider vinegar around the house to protect my cat. But I have to admit, adjusting to the chip shop vinegar smell is difficult! I miss when my house smelled like bleach because then I would know it's clean
  3. I agree with Simon! It's often so much easier to throw everything in one bin and be done with it. I live in a tiny apartment, so the thought of having loads of bins scares me! I'm sure IKEA has some kind of space-saving sorting system even for the smallest apartment. I also struggle with stupid things like forgetting my tote bags when I go shopping and I always end up buying a new one. I'm planning to buy one of those tote bags in a keychain so I can never forget them.
  4. Hi all, My name is Rebecca and I'm a freelance journalist with a background in conservation. I'm here to pick your brains on some of the most pressing environmental issues facing us today in the UK and further afield. I'm usually working on a research paper or three, so I'm sure I'll have plenty of questions and topics to share with you all to get some feedback if that's ok? Cheers, Becca
  5. As much as we’re all concerned with ensuring younger generations inherit a planet that isn’t on the brink of collapse, shouldn’t we also be concerned with teaching them to care about the planet? While the choice to adopt renewable energy sources might seem out of our control, the decision to teach young people about the environment is very much within our reach. If you have children in your life, why wouldn’t you spend a little time teaching them about how rainforests are the lungs of the earth? Or how a coral reef grows and gives life to so many marine animals. When I was growing up, on
  6. Since we only have one planet, it makes sense to do as much as we can to protect it, and yet we still seem to slow on the uptake of this fact. When it comes to greenhouse emissions, domestic emissions far exceed industrial emissions, meaning that your daily shower and boiling the kettle upwards of five times per day is doing more damage than the energy consumed by manufacturing. Moving towards more sustainable living arrangements should be an achievable goal, and yet these kinds of developments are few and far between. The UK recently announced its first carbon neutral building dev
