Penguin Protest

Random Man supports the actions of this brave penguin !!
When the brave penguin was asked "what it was all about?", he replied

"Please reduce your carbon emissions."

The brave penguin said you can help save vital ecosystems (including his home) by:

Eating less meat

Think about cutting down on your meat intake or choose meat that has a lower carbon footprint. Vegetarians don't eat meat at all (well some only eat fish or only eat eggs or only eat chips that were cooked in animal fat) and vegans don't eat meat and don't use animal products such as leather or animal fats (well). Thinking more about what you eat and where it came from is a good start. Eating free range rather than caged eggs seems to have started to gain popularity. So more people are starting to think about these complex issues when it comes to what they eat.

Reduce unnecessary consumption

Do you really NEED those new shoes or do you just WANT them?

Driving less

Some suggestions may include walking for short trips or riding your bike on short to mid-range journeys or perhaps planning better use of the car.

Recycling, repairing and reusing things.

Heaps of things can be recycled (e.g. paper or glass). Repairing things can often save you money (rather than simply throwing it away because it is broken). Reusing things can also give them a longer life. Be creative!
