Looking for practical eco-actions you can do from your own home? At the start of lockdown, we put these 21 suggestions together. You can do them anytime, anywhere, as long as you have a connection to the internet and around 15 minutes spare per day.
So why not join us for three weeks of climate action? Our weekly calender is opposite, and each day's action is broken down in detail below.
If you decide to give our three week-challenge a go, let us know on Twitter or Instagram, with #21Days.
Learn about eco-education
Where to start? If you haven't already, check out the vital Teach The Future campaign; follow them on
Twitter or subscribe to their newsletter for updates. If you've got kids, try an eco-activity like The Wildlife Trusts'
Go meat-free, or take a tech-break!
Take a day-long break from meat! If you need some veg-inspiration, head to BBC Goodfoods, or check out Jack Monroes' Vegan(ish) and Rukmini Iyer's The Green Roasting Tin (e-books available!). Or if you're already meat-free, try spending an evening entirely away from technology (warn your loved ones first!).
Forget your carbon footprint
Originally, today's action was calculate your carbon footprint - but recently, we learnt that the term 'carbon footprint' was actually coined and popularised by the world's 6th largest polluter, BP. So instead, why not learn about BP's lucrative PR campaign, and share what you've learnt with a friend.
Switch to a green energy supplier
Household energy makes up a huge 25% of the UK's CO2 emissions! So switching to green energy for your home can make a big difference. Recommended suppliers include: Ecotricity, Good Energy, Green Energy UK, Octopus Energy. Alternately, tweet/email a company you like, and ask them to switch their offices supply.
