Looking for ways to become happier, healthier and more environmentally friendly? One Planet Sutton works on many levels, including your own lifestyle.
Firstly, measure your footprint on our footprint calculator to explore your lifestyle and opportunities to get happier, healthier and more eco-friendly!
Next, explore our ideas and links below under each One Planet Living principle, to get inspired, take action, find support and learn top tips.
Taking action is much better than just talking about it. When it comes to taking action, Gandhi said something great: “Be the change you want to see in the world”. It’s a bit of an overused quote, but still a good one. The actions here don’t cover everything.
However they should give you a good building block and approach to help you reduce your footprint, and live a happier, healthier, more sustainable lifestyle. We have grouped them using the One Planet principles, a framework that is used internationally and for all One Planet Sutton projects.
