Our ecological footprints are made up of the many decisions everyone makes each day about what and how to consume. One Planet Living doesn't mean giving up everything we enjoy - it simply involves treating the earth as though we intended to stay.

  As individuals, we can:
  • walk, cycle or take public transport whenever possible
  • take a reusable cloth bag or basket when shopping
  • eat fresh, locally produced foods
  • take holidays closer to home to minimize plane travel
  • turn off lights in empty rooms, turn down the thermostat and save energy.

To involve our communities, we can:

  • talk to family and friends about sustainable living
  • encourage local businesses to consider their effects on the environment
  • ask our teachers to incorporate the footprint into the school curriculum
  • register to vote and support eco-friendly policies and candidates
