Hello Climate Copers!
We are a lifestyle blog based in Paris, France, with the intention of making people's lives easier by giving them easy-to-apply advice on various topics. One of those topics is climate change, since it concerns all of us and has become an important part of our private lives as well, so we want to share our personal experiences with our community. It all started with vegetable bags, and we kept on trying out new things with the intention of making this world a better place, because we can only prevent the worst from happening if we all work together.
How does climate change affect us?
Honestly? We are scared. We can already feel the negative effects of decades of exploiting our planet: temperatures and water levels are rising, natural disasters become more frequent and more destructive all around the world (floods, droughts, fires etc.). There is no way to undo what has already been done, but each of us can do his or her best to avoid making it worse. It doesn't matter if you focus on reducing your waste, stop eating animal products or try to equip your house with the most energy-efficient technology: Most important is that we all do something, everyone in their own pace.
That's why our goal is to motivate people to get out of their comfort zone and try to implement new sustainable habits into their everyday life. We want to demonstrate that an eco-friendly lifestyle does not at all mean restriction and sacrifice, but rather relief and even fun. Our articles consist of tips and suggestions that are practicable with minimum effort and that ultimately lead to this unique feeling of pride when you've managed to take the next step into the right direction.
Our action(s) towards a greener world:
We ourselves try our best to live a sustainable life and become better in doing so day after day. Our main focus is on reducing our waste by finding eco-friendly alternatives such as soap bars instead of liquid soap, a stainless steel water bottle, etc. It is actually very interesting and even fascinating what you can find out if you dig a little deeper. Did you know for instance that you can make your own vegetable broth by using kitchen waste that you normally would have disposed of?
Lately, we've been going a little further by looking into vegetarianism. Let us tell you that it is not easy to change your eating habits when you grew up eating meat and fish on a regular basis! But it is a new challenge that helps us broaden our mind, and nobody is asking us to be a perfect example overnight. Because let's be honest: We are all human and the best way to learn is to share our knowledge and experiences with the people around us.
