We can all take steps to reduce our carbon footprint. For some, that might mean upping sticks and living off the land. For the rest of us, the reality might involve smaller, but no less important, lifestyle changes: cutting back on plastic or food waste, foraging wild produce, growing a few vegetables, making your own plant-based milks, or keeping a chicken or two.
