7 Lifestyle guides for low-impact living

by | Jan 9, 2024

Creating a just and regenerative world takes daily acts of constant care. To make this easier for you, we have produced a series of guides filled with ideas on how to weave acts of care into everyday life.

Most people – in their individual capacity – are not responsible for the vast majority of climate impacts. According to the Carbon Majors Database, between 1988 and 2015, 100 companies were responsible for 71% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Nonetheless, we should redefine what it means to live well, in harmony with our surroundings.

Shifting to more sustainable living can be daunting. There is so much to do, making it difficult to know where to start. These guides are not here to sustainability shame. We know that there are many reasons why people can’t always make the “perfect” choice.

Our hope is that these simple ideas will make you feel empowered to make some small, impactful changes. Prioritise progress over perfection. Pick one thing, start simple, and the rest will follow.

Let’s do good, and live well, together. Find the guides here:
