What can you do?

Ever wondered how you can help fight climate change? Find out more about what you can do below.

Food

  • Can you choose to eat products that are locally produced to reduce food miles?
  • Can you cut down on your meat and dairy consumption? Some cattle and dairy farming practices are responsible for a large number of ammonia emissions, which cause pollution not only in the air but to surface and ground waters.

Energy

  • Can you use alternative heating options to avoid burning wood or waste?
  • Can you switch energy suppliers, to those who use renewable energy sources and do not support the fracking of natural gas?

Land use

  • Can you support your local wildlife and protect green spaces, supporting tree planting and biodiversity? Plants can improve air quality on a local level by removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, converting this and emitting oxygen.

Legislation

  • Can you support clean air legislation? Keep an eye on local developments and policy changes that are focused on air pollution.
