“No one could make a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could do only a little.” Edmund Burke
We all contribute to global warming and environmental pollution through our daily activities. Lifestyle changes are urgently needed and most of us want to do our bit, but there is a lot of conflicting advice out there. Often ‘eco’ products are the more expensive option, giving the impression that helping the environment has to cost more. Here at turning2green we are building up a collection of ideas, information and resources to help readers make informed decisions about greening their lifestyle, often saving money at the same time.
Massive changes are needed globally to even slow down the rate of global warming and climate change, and we all have a role to play. We need to make our own individual lifestyle changes, but we can also join together with others in movements such as Extinction Rebellion, we can sign petitions to make our voices heard, and we can support all those working for change.
This really is the most important issue of our time and every small action can help.

Meet the author.
Hi. My name is June and I write most of the content for turning2green. I have a Bsc(Hons) degree in Environmental Studies and worked for many years in the publishing industry, specialising in books on the environment and horticulture.
I’m lucky enough to live in Devon, in the south-west of England. For over thirty years I lived in a little wooden house set in a large garden in woodland close to the beautiful River Dart. Now retired, I recently moved to the city for the first time in my life, with quite mixed feelings. Thankfully I managed to find a house right beside a large park, and I’ve taken on an allotment, so I can still pretend that I’m living out in the countryside!
A lifetime of organic gardening has given me lots of practical experience of what works or doesn’t work, and I’m passing that knowledge on to anyone who might find it useful.
I also write about environmental issues and try to present the facts in a clear and balanced way with suggestions for practical action to take.
I’ve become very despairing over the years about the almost total lack of a response by governments and corporations to the increasing evidence of global warming and climate change. Back in the 1990’s we believed governments would listen. After all, they had acted on acid rain and the hole in the ozone layer, and the threat of climate change was even greater, so why wouldn’t they? But it’s that enormity of the situation that has been and still is the problem. To deal with it requires massive changes in the way we all live our lives. I do find it difficult to believe that it’s achievable now, but at last people are joining together and demanding action which gives me new hope, although there are still very many Trumps and Bolsonaros out there to convince.
