Change how you live

If everyone in the world lived like we do in the UK, we’d need far more than one planet to support us. Almost three Earths, in fact. It’s a way of life that’s threatening the future of our natural environment, as well millions of people around the world.

WWF puts pressure on government and industry to make the changes needed to alter our over-consuming lifestyles, and build a One Planet Future where people and nature thrive within their fair share of the Earth’s natural resources. We always need your help with our campaigning.

There are also simple steps we can each take to make our daily lives more sustainable, and help send a clear signal to government and industry that there's a demand and a need for change.
