⁣ Honey is a hotly debated topic among vegans. ⁣ ⁣ Vegans avoid honey and bee products because bees make them. Vegans avoid animal products, and a bee is an animal. But some people disagree and believe that avoiding ingredients like honey can harm the vegan movement by appearing too rigid or difficult.⁣ ⁣ I honestly haven’t decided how I feel about honey. I haven’t consumed it since being vegan I decided until I could make an informed decision, that would be the right thing to do.⁣ ⁣ When I ask other vegans about honey, it seems that many do not eat it but can’t truly explain why.⁣ ⁣ I always purchased local raw honey. I see the bee hives daily on a field in our village, I have spoke to the bee keeper and appreciate how he cares for the bees eg relocating the hives and bees to lower ground during winter months otherwise they would not survive the cold.⁣ ⁣ Surely this is positive when considering the serious issue we face in declining bee populations? ⁣ ⁣ What’s your thoughts?⁣ _________________________________________________ #savethebees #bees #protectthebees #veganfortheplanet #liveintentionally #environmentalist #environment #eco #noplanetb #globalwarming #nature #ecofriendly #vegan #earth #climatechange #plantbased #thefutureisplantbased #savetheplanet #veganism #climateemergency #climatebreakdown #ecomum #greenmum #sustainableliving #climatechangeisreal #saveourplanet #bethechange #imperfectenvironmentalist #naturephotographer

A five year study by Oxford University has confirmed that a vegan diet is the single biggest way to reduce your impact on planet earth. This is the most comprehensive study ever to analyse the impact of farming on the environment. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Animal agriculture impacts a multitude of environmental issues not just greenhouse gases, but global acidification, eutrophication, land use and water use.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Animal agriculture produces more green house gas than the entire transport industry that’s cars, planes, boats & trains combined⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Animal agriculture is the leading cause of dead zones in the oceans due to toxins and manure pouring into the ocean (scientists predict we will see fishless oceans by 2048)⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Animal agriculture is the leading cause of deforestation, animal agriculture is a direct driver for around 80% of deforestation⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Animal agriculture is the leading cause of specifies extinction (Our planet is now in the midst of its sixth mass extinction of plants and animals)⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ As consumers we have the power to change the world. First we need to internalise the problem, what I mean by that is to solve this ourselves. First by understanding how every decision we make, every day, is impacting planet earth and begin to make a conscious decisions. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ We are the change.

Did you know we only have 12 years to limit climate change before the damage is irreversible? I fear that the day will come when my children ask me for a drink of water and I won’t be able to help them! Don’t kid yourself, climate change is real, if we don’t change fast this will be our reality. ___________________________________________ #veganfortheplanet #liveintentionally #environmentalist #environment #eco #sustainability #green #nature #ecofriendly #vegan #earth #climatechange #sustainable #plantbased #thefutureisplantbased #zerowaste #savetheplanet #veganism #climatejusticenow #climateemergency #hotplanet #parentsforfuture #climatebreakdown #ecomum #greenmum #sustainableliving #climatechangeisreal #saveourplanet #bethechange #imperfectenvironmentalist

Earth overshoot day is a day in the year where humanity has used up all of the resources that the earth can replenish in a year. ⁣ ⁣ When it was first measured back in c1969 humanity lived in equilibrium with the planet so earth overshoot day was 31st December. ⁣ ⁣ Last year (2018) earth overshoot day was 1st August.⁣ ⁣ What that means is everything that everyone of us, 7.5billion people, consume after 1st August, is net net depletive to the planet. ⁣ ⁣ According to the Global Footprint Network, by 2020, human demand on the planet's ecosystems will likely exceed what nature is able to regenerate by 75%. ___________________________________________ #veganfortheplanet #liveintentionally #environmentalist #environment #eco #sustainability #green #nature #ecofriendly #vegan #earth #climatechange #sustainable #plantbased #thefutureisplantbased #zerowaste #savetheplanet #veganism #climatejusticenow #climateemergency #hotplanet #parentsforfuture #climatebreakdown #ecomum #movethedate #sustainableliving #climatechangeisreal #saveourplanet #bethechange #imperfectenvironmentalist

Since 2000 an area of tropical forest (the most biodiverse in the world) the size of UK, France, Germany, Spain & Portugal combined has been cut down or burnt to clear the way for livestock grazing and to grow livestock feed. ⁣ ⁣ The last 2 years have been the highest rate of deforestation on record.⁣ ⁣ And there is no reason to believe that we will slow down land clearance when the demand for meat and dairy is rising.⁣ ⁣ It is forecast that by 2050 humans will consume 1.4 trillion litres of milk and 500 billion kilograms of meat a year.⁣ ⁣ We are destroying our precious planet yet it is so easy to make a change. ___________________________________________ #veganfortheplanet #liveintentionally #environmentalist #environment #eco #sustainability #green #nature #ecofriendly #vegan #earth #climatechange #sustainable #plantbased #thefutureisplantbased #zerowaste #savetheplanet #veganism #climatejusticenow #climateemergency #hotplanet #parentsforfuture #climatebreakdown #ecomum #greenmum #sustainableliving #climatechangeisreal #saveourplanet #bethechange #imperfectenvironmentalist

I’m a perfectionist and easily get caught up in the “all or nothing” mentality. I love this quote from @zerowastechef it’s an ideal reminder to me that just because I can’t do everything it doesn’t mean I can’t do something. Along my personal journey to #liveconciouslyI became more aware and involved in #environmentalismand reading this quote kept me focused. Sometimes we can feel like our small actions don’t make any difference & I have come to realise that it’s not only about the impact of my own actions but inspiring others. The truth is that I used to think that so much of what is wrong with the world was out of my control. I was intimidated and didn’t pay attention, ignorance is bliss?! I couldn’t face the truth, I felt so afraid about what the future planet looked like for my children and I’d feel helpless and overwhelmed. Until one day I decided I have to do something! Why? Because I can’t do nothing.

Earth Day, celebrated on 22 April, brings attention to the need to solve climate change. We are already experiencing negative impacts from climate change as a result of global warming. We don’t need to go to extreme measures, we simply have to make more conscious choices in our everyday life to make a positive impact, we need to realise that small changes ultimately do make a difference. Through taking consistent conscious action we can start to be part of the solution. “We don’t need a handful of people doing zero waste perfectly. We need millions of people doing it imperfectly” Anne Marie Bonneau. A must watch.
