Background

This information is about the specific health area mentioned above. It comprises a combination of textual and video information, on our site and on external sites.  We will be adding new specific health areas and further information continually.

The idea is for you to understand more about the health area you are addressing before you get too far building your action plan.

General Information

Greenness is defined in the Cambridge Dictionary as:the quality of being green in colour, especially because of being covered with grass, trees, and other plants:  Or, the quality of not damaging the environment, or of caring for it:

The world faces environmental challenges from global to local levels. Well-rehearsed but impenetrable issues, include the increased likelihood of damage to life and infrastructure from climate change; carbon management policies for governments; increasing levels of poverty and hunger associated with growing populations; and, potentially, mass movement of environmental migrants.

GreenDrive

GreenDrive is about taking care of the environment, it’s also about taking care of wildlife and the habitat that surrounds you, which provides a visual and audible splendour every day you step outside.

It does not matter where you live, house or flat, small or large garden, city or village, wildlife surrounds us and we can choose to either help it survive and prosper or dwindle and disappear. Most people do not even realise it is there, especially today with the busy lives we lead.

There is so much written about climate change – much of it controversial and sometimes contradictory. But there are some things that are pretty obvious, such as the need to recycle. As the world changes and the human population increases, there is a bigger demand to feed people and this intensive farming impacts on us and on the other animals we share the planet with.

So GreenDrive is all about taking care of what’s around us.

We have one planet and we owe it to our grandchildren and those generations not born yet to do our bit to make it all sustainable.

40 things you can do to help the environment that are within your total control.

Read the news on any given day, and you’d think we were all soon-to-be goners from climate change. New stories and reports regularly reveal all the ways humans are trashing the planet at an unprecedented rate.

Given the seemingly dismal reality, we might be tempted to throw up our hands and say there’s nothing we can do to fix the problem. But defeatism won’t get us anywhere.

Governments and corporations need to step in, but they shouldn’t bear all the responsibility for making a positive environmental impact. People from all walks of life can do things each day to reduce their carbon footprint and make their routine more eco-friendly.

Becoming an environmental warrior doesn’t require a superhero-like effort. Something as simple as creating a grocery shopping list or using ceramic baking pans can make a big difference.

In fact, a healthy lifestyle and an eco-conscious one often go hand in hand. Extra bonus: Being eco-friendly is often easier on the wallet.

If you’re wondering what you can do about climate change and nature loss, look no further.

We’ve compiled a list of effective ways to reduce your environmental footprint. The biggest game changers are labelled “top tips”.

As well as making changes as an individual, you can join others to bring about bigger change. Right now communities across the country are fighting climate breakdown. See what’s going on in your area.

Friends of the Earth have tips to help climate change.
