Kate Meads has been an advocate for the earth for many years, running workshops right around the country on cloth nappies and waste-free parenting.
These ideas are just a few suggestions to get you thinking about ways you can make a change to limit the impact you’re having on this precious earth. Don’t be daunted – if you take care of the small things, the big things will take care of themselves.
It has taken my family years to achieve what we have and it was baby steps all the way. I’m doing pretty well at living sustainably, but I am not perfect. I drive a V8 for goodness sake.
However, in my day-to-day life I try to make resourceful choices and do my best to have less impact on the planet.
I see around 5000 families each year through my workshops and I’ll be happy if I can inspire those families to do just one thing differently. It is not about feeling guilty, it is about making the effort to change something. If every person makes one small change each day, the results over time will be huge
