Introducing Talitha, a Marine Biologist

Three Green Living Questions

  1. What one thing do you do in your home that you feel makes a difference to the environment?
  2. I work on reducing my waste. I do this by:
    Saying no to single use plastic wherever possible-don’t use plastic bags and avoid plastic packaging wherever I can. Recycle, everything is recyclable, and compost all organic waste.

  3. If you could tell your community one thing to change what would it be?
  4. To pick your battle and stick with it. Decide on one thing to change, for example: stop using plastic bags or straws. Commit to that one thing and go from there.

  5. If you had an opportunity to speak to world leaders what policy would you ask them to implement?
  6. Weekly national cleanup days (like Rwanda has), where everyone has to clean up a local space (from president to pauper). When we see our rubbish, we should hopefully want to reduce it.
