Zero-waste living has been on the rise for quite a fews years. The movement started gaining traction when the public were made more aware of the severity of the climate crisis. It’s exactly what it sounds like, creating little-to-no waste. This extends to considering all rubbish, not just the end-of-life waste but the waste made as a product is manufactured, the impact of transporting the product, and whether the materials needed are sustainable.

How do the Winter Olympics affect the planet?

We’re a few weeks into the Winter Olympics, with people from all over the world participating, attending, and tuning in. The event is all about celebrating people and their achievements, but rarely considers the impact it has on the environment. With global warming increasing at a rapid rate, an event like the Olympics can make a real difference, for better or worse. For an event that heavily relies on ice and snowfall, the [...]

The Truth About Indoor Plants

By |2022-07-19T18:08:54+00:00January 27, 2022|Gone West, Life Hacks & Climate Action|

When I ask you what you think is good for the planet, I’m sure that one of the things that comes to mind are plants. Right? They are natural living things that photosynthesise, producing oxygen by taking CO2 out of the atmosphere. When they die, they decompose easily because they are completely natural. Harmless, right? So, house plants shouldn’t be much different. They are good for the mind and they are good for [...]

By |2022-07-19T16:36:50+00:00January 13, 2022|Gone West, Life Hacks & Climate Action|

Veganism is often regarded as an unattainable lifestyle for most. It is seen as expensive and inaccessible to those without a lot of time and money to devote to it. But that is simply not true! At Gone West, we took on the challenge to create an entirely vegan 3-week meal plan for two people that costs around £30 for the week, just in time for Veganuary! We wanted to debunk the myths [...]

We made it! It’s finally 2022! But before we get stuck into the new year, we need to take a look back at 2021. The start of a new year is always a great time for resolutions and reflections. It puts things into perspective and generally makes us appreciate what we’ve got and highlights what we need to work on. Generally, this process is pretty introspective, but what’s stopping us from broadening our [...]

Christmas day is almost upon us! The day we spend unwrapping gifts, playing games, and getting merry with our loved ones. It’s all about showing love towards one another and celebrating what we have as an individual and a collective. However, that love rarely extends to anything outside of that core circle of people we care about. We have a planet that needs our help desperately and Christmas is doing the opposite of [...]
