An interesting article from @WhichUK highlighting the impact of the meat and dairy industries to our environment.
From cutting back on meat and dairy to eating local and seasonal – these are just some of the small changes we can all make to our diet that can have a big impact on the future of the planet and the fight against climate change.
Just 3 days(!) until our influential panel of speakers discuss why business should be supporting the #CEEBill.

Very pleased to announce a little FB live on Wednesday 13th Jan 7.30pm Me + @Ecotricity Founder and @FGRFC_Official Chair, Dale Vince. It's a live Q&A, we'll discuss Dale's new book, ‘Manifesto’, but all sorts on climate & nature and activism. Register https://fb.me/e/3k26QsToM
We are saddened and frustrated to hear this news. Although bees will be the majority effected, birds and aquatic insects could also come under harm and populations could be impacted. The government should do more to support nature-friendly alternatives.
Pesticide believed to kill bees is authorised for use in England https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2021/jan/09/pesticide-believed-kill-bees-authorised-use-england-eu-farmers?utm_term=Autofeed&CMP=twt_gu&utm_medium&utm_source=Twitter#Echobox=1610197017

A huge thank to you also, @ethicalstore! And to everyone joining at home!
We've learnt new tips, been introduced to new eco-brands and have a new shopping list!
We'd love to know what else everyone has learnt that's new tonight!
Good luck on the start to your eco journey!
We've come to the end of #Ecohour; thank you so much to everyone who took part! 💚
We want to say a huge hank you to @ecotricity for letting us host #Ecohour with them and discuss some of the topics that we are passionate about 🌍
It’s so easy to #SayNoToFastFashion! Our top tips are to:
👉 Buy second-hand using apps or charity shops
👉 Search for opportunities to swap your clothes
👉 Store old clothes instead of throwing them away
...and of course, buy ethically.
What are your top tips? #Ecohour
A great way to reduce your own consumption of fast fashion is to think quality over quantity ✔️
Downsize your wardrobe and donate or sell the items you no longer want 👚
Choose well-made and longer-lasting clothes... 💚
Tag a friend that you think could make a swap to Fairtrade! #Ecohour
The difference your simple swaps can make is incredible. You can still buy tasty snacks, a cuddly jumper and the perfect brew… But your choice to purchase the Fairtrade option could drastically improve someone’s life. #Ecohour https://twitter.com/ethicalstore/status/1346559595997667328

Did you know that workers on Fairtrade certified plantations invested 50% of their Fairtrade premium in education services and housing improvements...
Have you made a swap to Fairtrade recently? What did you buy? #Ecohour
When you choose to buy products that are Fairtrade certified you know that the producers behind the products are being paid fairly for their work and therefore can live a much more higher quality of life 🌍
…And you can be too! If you switch to Britains greenest energy company via http://ecotricity.co.uk/ethicalsuperstore, you could receive up to £50 to spend 👏
From filling up on Fairtrade chocolate to donating straight to third world countries, we are proud to be a partner of @ethicalsupersotre and @divinechocolate, making the world a better place. #Ecohour https://twitter.com/ethicalstore/status/1346557079444729857

Another #Fairtrade brand that we love is @divinechocolate 🍫
Divine Chocolate is co-owned by the farmers that grow their cocoa 💚
When you know exactly where your purchase is coming from and who it is positively impacting, it gives you an even better feeling when you choose to shop Fairtrade. 💚 #Ecohour
Our blog titled, 'The People Behind the Products' looks further into some of our Fairtrade brands and the people behind them! @Cafedirect @divinechocolate @Zaytoun_CIC @SharedEarthWS @etsteas
@ecotricity #ecohour #fairtrade
Did you know that single-use masks made from plastics like polypropylene, polyethene and vinyl take 450 years to degrade? Swapping to a reusable mask is an easy swap for many people. Head to http://ethicalsuperstore.com to purchase yours! #Ecohour
Recently the use of disposable and single-use face masks has accelerated plastic pollution waste ❌
We only sell reusable and Fairtrade face masks that are better for our planet and the people who make them 💚
#Ecohour @ecotricity @BBCNews
In April 2020, @guardian highlighted the impacts of fast fashion and called it an “environmental disaster”. Fortunately, many people have been swapping to eco alternatives such as @ethicalsuperstore. Do you have a favourite brand? #Ecohour
We're extremely passionate about saying NO to fast fashion!
Fast fashion encourages over-consumption & generates excessive waste ❌
The makers of these clothes are often exploited and underpaid which is we only promote sustainable fashion brands...
“At @Cafedirect, the mission is to change lives and build communities through inspirational, sustainable business, by making great tasting hot drinks direct from the growers.” This is fantastic! Will YOU be purchasing a bag? #Ecohour
One of our favourite Fairtrade brands is @Cafedirect who invest 50% of their profits into @ProducersDirect a charity that works directly with farmers to improve sustainability and livelihoods 🌍☕
@FairtradeUK @ecotricity #echohour
Do you choose to buy Fairtrade products?
We're excited to be kicking off #Ecohour with @ethicalstore discussing today's all-important topics.
#Ecohour has started! For the next hour we will be discussing the importance of supporting producers particularly in third world countries...
Less than one hour to go! We're saying #NoToFastFashion, yes to Fairtrade and YUM to @divinechocolate. What are you saying YES to in 2021? #Ecohour
Join us and @ecotricity on Twitter this evening for #Ecohour between 8 and 9pm tonight!
We will be discussing our passion for supporting producers and the importance of buying Fairtrade 🌍
