Hey there, let me start by telling you a little bit about myself, my name is Alex and I’m a Chartered Environmentalist.
Up until last year I was one of the Directors at a fantastic energy and environmental consultancy, which provides advice to developers in the housing industry.
I was there for nearly 10 years, but decided to leave to spend more time with my son and husband.
I still do some freelance work for them, but I’m currently doing a coding course, in hopes of becoming an iOS developer.
Since leaving the company, I was worried that I was neglecting my environmental side, but by spending more time at home, I was able to see how unsustainable we had become, and I had also become desensitised to the amount of damage we were unintentionally doing, mainly because it was happening so gradually.
For the last 7 years, I had been advising companies on what they should be going, but had forgotten to follow my own advice!
So at the start of 2019, I decided to reduce my family’s carbon footprint by making small and consistent changes to our lifestyle, I hope something here may inspire you to do the same.
