Little Steps, Big Difference
(Under Construction)

Going completely green can be a challenge, but little steps can make a huge difference

Plant trees as you search the net

While the likes of Google are owned by some of the richest people on the planet, Ecosia doesn't have shareholders, instead the money they generate through advertising is spent planting trees. Meaning you can help to reverse deforestation and desertification as you look up the answer to that niggling question your friend just asked you.

Grow a little food...

If you have an allotment or large garden and can grow a lot of food, great. Although you don't need a massive garden to grow some food. Something as simple as a plastic tub with a sheet of toilet roll and a few cress seeds is a relatively quick and cheap way of cutting down your food miles. If you're feeling a little more adventurous maybe you could grow chillies on a windowsill, salad in a pot by your doorstep or install a window box.
