I live in Scotland with my partner and two small children. Since having children we have become more focussed on reducing our environmental impact and building secure financial future. I work full time, so I’m always looking for ways to maximise time with my family, and also look after my own wellbeing.
Our goal is to be able to spend and invest our time and money in line with our values – which means reducing our own family’s environmental impact and supporting projects that try to do this on a larger scale. We are still learning and far from perfect – sometimes we balance convenience with carbon impact.
This blog is a way of sharing our journey and helping others with similar goals.
By day I work in the field of business ethics and sustainability. I love this work and feel passionate about the role that businesses can play in addressing climate change.
It’s also clear that we have an important role to play as consumers and citizens. Knowing that we are doing our part helps to give us the authority to demand more from businesses and governments. I believe there is still an information gap, which this blog aims to help serve.
