The use of fossil fuels continue to push people deeper into poverty by contributing to climate change.
Some of the biggest sources of so-called ‘dirty energy’ are linked to how we travel. We know that decision-makers respond to our voices when we sign petitions. And we know that they pay even closer attention to our actions. We invite you to take action in your own life to shift the balance away from polluting fossil fuels and encourage decision-makers to do the same.
Even small acts, taken together, help create a groundswell of support for change. Put your faith into action by pledging to make a change this year.
Ready for more ways to take action?
Think about where else you could reduce your impact, around your home and in your lifestyle. It doesn't need to be complicated. Here are some simple ideas to get you started:
In your home:
Swap your light bulbs for LED ones
Use a reusable water bottle and coffee cup for when you’re out and about
In your diet:
Reduce your food waste and get creative in the kitchen with leftovers
Reduce how much meat you eat: try Meat-Free Monday or going vegan one day a week
With your money:
Switch to a bank that doesn’t invest in fossil fuels, for more info look at websites, such as Which? or Ethical Consumer.
Move your pension to an ethical fund, which doesn’t make any fossil fuel investments.
