Get Outdoors: How to Thrive Outside

Get Outdoors: How to Thrive Outside

Now that we are into November, and temperatures outside have lowered, it makes sense that most of us will want to spend as much time as possible wrapped up inside, away from the harsher weather. But while the idea of staying indoors sounds terrific to most people, we could all benefit from spending some time outside every day. So what will you notice if you decide to venture outdoors? Even if you are not physically active, spending time outdoors has numerous proven health benefits. Since before the era of digital technology, Japan has advocated for the wealth of health benefits...

“Sleep is that golden chain that ties health and our bodies together.” - Thomas Dekker

A third of a person’s life is spent sleeping, and yet one in three British people suffer from poor sleep. Sleep is as critical to our wellbeing as food, water and shelter, which is why we often hear about the importance of a healthy sleep routine and the risks of missing out on a good night’s sleep. Rather than discussing the detrimental downsides if we are missing out, we are taking this opportunity to suggest practical changes to your nightly routine.

Make Small Changes To Your Diet, Make Big Changes To Your Planet

Did you know that 70% of all freshwater taken from rivers and lakes is used in agriculture?  Agriculture is responsible for the majority of deforestation, meaning that our current food system is responsible for 60% of biodiversity loss worldwide. What’s more, food is responsible for around 30% of greenhouse gas emissions globally, and if we don’t take action this number is predicted to grow. The choices we make as consumers can help to avoid this happening. The signs are clear, our planet is suffering as a result of intensive farming practices in the agricultural industry. To add to this problem, we...

How Are You Spending Today's Global Climate Strike?

How Are You Spending Today's Global Climate Strike?

As we think about the Global Climate Strike happening today, we would like to shine a spotlight on the brands that are really making a difference in the current climate crisis. We would love to be joining in on the strike, but as today is our big move in day to a new office we have had to contribute in an alternative way. It is understandable that the severity of the issue can make the matter seem quite bleak. But today, we celebrate the companies that often look for ways to reduce their impact on the world around them through recycling, using less energy and supporting conservation efforts of other countries and charities.

The Four Pillars of Travelling Sustainably

The Four Pillars of Travelling Sustainably

We all know flying around the world is not good for the environment, but if you do have to travel, how can you ensure you do it as sustainably as possible? Green travel is all about making smarter choices that help to lessen the negative impacts we create when we travel. We at Agent of Change believe there are four pillars of sustainable travel: reducing your impact, supporting local communities, preserving nature and carbon offsetting.

 

A recent TripAdvisor survey found that nearly two-thirds of all travellers are increasingly inclined to make more environmentally sound choices and travel green. In the UK alone, air travel is responsible for 6.3% of the country’s CO2 emissions. We cannot control the carbon emissions of the planes we fly in, the chemicals used by the hotels in which we stay, or the plastics used in the souvenirs sold in the destinations we visit. But we can make each travel choice more eco-friendly by selecting transportation, hotels, tour operators, and shopping tactics that do less damage to the environment, and create more benefits for local people.

The Hidden Impact of the Internet on Our Environment

As conversation topics go, how to live more sustainably is something many of us seem to be discussing. Embracing ‘the 3 Rs’: reduce, reuse, recycle is, quite rightly, becoming a way of living that more and more of us are committed to. But how much do we know about the impact our use of technology has on the environment?
