making a change

I’m still trying to find more sustainable ways of living, though I haven’t been writing about it.   It feels a bit strange writing about it here as it is primarily a gaming blog… and I’m also worried about coming across as preachy or smug.  I’ve decided, though I will carry on, if nothing else it will remind me of changes I have made and want to make.

So what can we do?

  • write to your local political representative(s) and ask that they support green initiatives for local issues
  • sign petitions
  • support a charity
  • refuse/reduce/reuse/repurpose/recycle
  • join groups (tons of opportunities but I like 1 million women  for lazy reading and for good ideas and I also attend our local beach cleans)
  • write to companies that you regularly shop with and ask them to reduce plastic packaging, or to reduce their single-use plastics.
  • eat less meat and dairy
  • vote for candidates who seem committed to green issues

I’m planning on doing some further posts on using less plastic, some vegetarian recipes, links to people to follow / blogs to read, links to carbon footprint calculators etc, being a ‘green’ gamer – is there anything you would like to see?

    I don’t feel like you are coming as preachy or smug. I actually think all of those ideas are great. 🙂

    As far as content though I don’t have anything in particular I am looking for right now. So whatever you decide to write about on the topic will be interesting for me. 🙂

    Doesn’t seem smug at all. Smugness has more to do with an “I’m better than you because I do this” kind of attitude.

    I used to be more into the green thing than I am now. I’m personally more interested in sustainable energy generation like solar.

      thanks, yeah, I’d love to get some solar panels for our roof – we’re not in a position to be able to do that yet though – maybe one day…
