Imagine lying awake every night feeling guilty about all of the bad decisions you made throughout the day, being constantly reminded of the impact you’re having on our environment yet making no significant changes to your lifestyle. That was me - Amy, one of the founders of The Lazy Environmentalists - just a few years ago. If this also sounds like you, we’re here to help.
When researching climate change, the majority of articles available have negative connotations and little solutions for the individual audience - almost as though our individual efforts couldn’t make a difference.
In hindsight, I could always see the scale of the issues but it was difficult to personally relate to which led me to a state of ignorance and laziness. I discussed my feelings with some close friends and they thought that other people would feel exactly the same. I decided to start a Facebook Page to find those likeminded people but the page would also enable me to commit to and document my changes.
