How long have you been involved with BFoE?

I became a volunteer in December 2015.

How did you first find out about BFoE and what made you decide to get involved?

I was looking for an environmental organisation to volunteer with, and a friend told me about Friends of the Earth. So, I went to one of the Campaign meetings and it was such a welcoming atmosphere with great people that I got really excited to join the group.

What do you do at BFoE?

I am involved in the Birmingham Pound group. We are setting up a local currency for Birmingham to promote local business. I write blog posts and articles and I manage the social media accounts. I also do quite a bit of social media for the BFoE accounts.

What do you think is the most important environmental issue and why?

Climate change poses a great danger to our lives and to people all around the Earth. I think we have to take drastic action against climate change in solidarity with people around the world.

What’s your best green tip/advice?

As a vegan, I say: have a critical look at your diet. You can greatly reduce your environmental impact by deciding to put less animal products on your plate and it’s healthier to boot! It’s only a small decision everyday, but it can save tons of carbon.
