How to live sustainably
The climate crisis is so overwhelming that it can feel like there is nothing any of us can do about it. In fact, each of us can fight for real change by lobbying and campaigning, and each of us can also choose to live more sustainably.
That means being mindful of the impact of our actions and purchases, and of the emissions or biodiversity loss we might be causing, directly or indirectly.
Starting to live more sustainably
Sustainable living is all about the choices you make around:
- how to get to DCU
- how you travel in Dublin, across Ireland and beyond
- what you buy and what you throw away
- your energy use
- your water use
- how you protect and support your environment
If you still feel overwhelmed, start somewhere. Decide on a sustainable change you can make today and then look to change more things as you go.
