Talk About It

A wise person once said “when the people lead, the leaders will follow”, and we believe that people power at the average family level has the power to make significant positive impacts on our environment as a whole.

By sharing what we do – presenting to groups, this website, posts on social media, talking with friends, opening our house, running workshops and explaining to shopkeepers why we’re making the choices we do in their shop – we can help normalise these attitudes and behaviours and encourage others to come on board.

It is also important to be talking to our elected members, big companies and other members of our communities about what we expect to see and what is important to us.
