Sustainable Living Guide

It’s no secret that lots needs to change for the sake of our planet. We all have a part to play in fighting the climate crisis.

When it comes to making positive changes, it can be difficult and a little overwhelming. So we have put together a sustainable living guide to hopefully make things a little easier. It includes tips and links to useful websites, apps and places. Our aim is not that you do absolutely everything, but rather that you find it a useful reference and encouragement for living a more sustainable life.

Green Rewards

Wherever you live, work or study, you can make a difference. Even the smallest actions add up to big impact, like walking instead of driving, or avoiding single use plastics. Every sustainable action matters.

We’re also making it easy (and rewarding!) for you to take positive environmental action with Green Rewards. Green Rewards is an online platform and mobile app where you can record your sustainable activities. In return you’ll earn Green Points and the chance to win vouchers for yourself and charity donations for your team. Plus, many of the actions are not only good for the planet but good for your pocket too!

If you haven’t tried Green Rewards yet, sign up and get started with the actions that are listed in the guide.
