15 simple environmental initiatives to change the world

We all have the power as individuals to create significant, positive and lasting change. Here are 15 simple environmental initiatives you can do today to help make the world a better place tomorrow.

  1. Join 1 Million Women movement and take practical action on climate change in your everyday lives to cut pollution, reduce waste, save energy and lead change.
  2. Take 3 For The Sea – take 3 pieces of rubbish when you leave the beach, waterway or anywhere!
  3. Plastic Free July – Go plastic free in July and try to continue it throughout the year.
  4. Join the Don’t Palm Us Off campaign - advocate for mandatory palm oil labelling in Australia by sending an email to your premier.
  5. Spread awareness – it’s free! Talk to family and friends about our current environmental issues and encourage them to live more sustainably.
  6. Clean up Australia Day – volunteer to pick up rubbish from an area near your home or office.
  7. Quit single use plastics – stop using single use plastics and choose reusable products instead.
  8. Plant a tree on National Tree Day or any day!
  9. Compost your kitchen and garden waste – Composing reduces landfill waste and greenhouse gasses.
  10. Reduce your food miles - buy organic and seasonal produce from local producers.
  11. Shop palm oil free – Use Palm Oil Investigation’s barcode scanner app to check the ingredients in a product or shop palm oil free with confidence at Biome Eco Stores.
  12. Leave the car at home – take public transport, cycle or walk.
  13. Reduce food waste – plan your meals, only buy what you need and eat leftovers.
  14. Meat Free Monday – reduce your weekly meat consumption by eating vegetarian or vegan meals on Monday.
  15. Reduce, reuse and recycle – actively take part in reducing your waste, reusing what you can before purchasing new, and recycling what you can.
The collective power of individual actions can create significant change!
