Always choose renewable energy
To fight the changing climate, we need carbon neutral energy sources. Choose renewable energy when you can – weather it is for your home, business, or an investment. Ask questions to your electricity provider, employer, bank or parents to make sure that you support renewable!

A Climate Action Weekend
Ready for a challenge? Go “Meatless Friday” (make a delicious vegetarian dish instead), “Green Saturday” (no transportation using fossil fuels, try walking or bicycling) and “Lazy Sunday” (take some time off and watch some environmental documentaries like ‘Earth’ or ‘An Inconvenient Truth’).

Buy second hand

There could be a higher environmental cost hidden behind low price-tag on fast fashion. Invest in clothes that will last longer or give new life to clothes by buying second hand.
