One Planet Week 20th-26th February - Reduce Your Environmental Footprint

BY DIONNE LISTER

In Australia we have one of the largest ecological footprints per person, meaning we use more resources per capita than many other countries. With One Planet Week, participants are asked to reduce their use of resources for one week and hopefully longer. The founder of this initiative, Oz Green, is an organisation that focuses on educating the public about sustainability. During One Planet Week we are being encouraged to make small changes to reduce our use of resources whilst obtaining sponsorship.

Visit the website  for ideas on how to decrease your environmental footprint. Some of the ways they suggest for you to be more environmental include riding your bike or using public transport to get to work instead of driving, eating less meat and buying local produce instead of packaged goods. Donations can also be made directly to Oz Green.
