One solution for individuals wanting to help fight the climate crisis is being a responsible consumer, because the amount of stuff we consume on the planet is the biggest cause of climate change. Around 80% of Scotland’s carbon footprint is from the products, materials and services we buy and use. Being aware of this and rethinking how we make more sustainable choices can really help.
Find out more from Zero Waste Scotland about why our lifestyles are fuelling the climate crisis and what action we can all take to help solve it – whether it be shopping for something secondhand, borrowing a tool instead of buying it, or simply making what we have last longer. After which, Catherine Bozec and Fraser Millar from Zero Waste Scotland will be joining us for a live Q&A session.
