Low Carbon Stuff Challenges

These challenges have been designed to support you in reducing the emissions associated with the things you buy. Pick one (or all three!) of these challenges below.

  1. Shop stop: Set yourself the challenge of not buying anything new that you don’t need. Decide on a timeframe that works for you. However once the time is up, can you challenge yourself to extend it?
  2. Upcycling: Identify and mend/upcycle a piece of clothing. Think about the following questions. Was it difficult? Are you happy to wear the item again?
  3. There’s an app for that!: Find and try out an app that will help you reduce the carbon footprint of stuff.

Good luck with your challenge!
