Yesterday night I was home alone, so i was cosy-ing up, ready to enjoy my evening: glorious leftover-dinner, blanket and DVD.
Sounds idyllic, doesn't it?

Of all the causes we want to support, i believe that this is one of the most important and pressing.
And the awesome thing is that we can do SO MUCH just thinking about the way we do everyday things.
To travel short distances, for example, we can enjoy a lovely bike ride rather than locking ourselves in a car and getting stuck in traffic (honestly, how much better does "the lovely bike ride" sound?); or we could just rethink that salad and those pale, sad-looking tomatoes cause, after all, it's still January, and make ourselves a warm, thick, pastinaak (parsnip) soup instead.
Because even the unbelievably easy act of buying local can have such a big impact.
Now go, watch the documentary and start saving our planet!
