Here we share what environmental initiative worked for us on a personal, individual or family level. What was it, how do we know it worked and any tips to help other people try it too.
If you need inspiration, take a look here.
To share initiatives that worked for a community (in a parish, school or in a shared building) use the sister page here.

We will update this summary table to reflect your comments below. Read the comments for the full and latest feedback.
Maybe we tried something and it didn’t really work? We can share that too: what was it, why it didn’t work so well and what you would change about it if others wanted to try it.
