Sustainable Life Coaching

If, like me, you have noticed the conversation around climate change and sustainable living getting louder recently you may be considering your own role in these areas.

Gathering Green may be able to help. If you care about the planet, but are not sure where to start, or are overwhelmed by the thought of throwing away all the plastic in your life then I can help. I offer a consultation, currently running via Zoom, to talk through areas in your life where you would like help making sustainable choices. This can include changing specific products, lifestyle changes or introducing you to amazing brands that are eco-friendly and actively 'give something back'.

We have all thought about making changes but it is easy to get side-tracked by work, children, and just life. It may be that you would like some direction to subsitutes and daily alternatives to your current household or beauty products. Or tips on how to make changes to your lifestyle to be more eco-friendly.

 “Pollution and the discarding of plastic waste must be tackled for the sake of all life in the ocean. Surely we have a responsibility to care for our planet. The future of humanity and indeed all life on earth, now depends on us.”
Sir David Attenborough

When I made these changes in my life I was pleased to find that I preferred the natural products, they did the job, sometimes even better than previous products and with the added bonus of knowing that I was not harming the planet. In some cases I was actually making a positive impact just by buying the things I needed anyway.

And in truth, no, I don't live in a perfect plastic free home, but by consciously changing my choices I have reduced our family waste, lowered our plastic and chemical consumption, and know that I have helped small businesses and our planet. And I am not done yet, I believe it is about making small manageable changes, one step at a time, one item at a time, these all add up to big changes in the long term.
