The Lazy Person’s Guide to Saving the World

The Sustainable Development Goals are important, world-changing objectives that will require cooperation among governments, international organizations and world leaders. It seems impossible that the average person can make an impact.

Should you just give up?

No! There are some super easy things we can adopt into our routines that, if we all do it, will make a big difference. Have a look at just a few of the many things you can do to make an impact!


  1. less meat, poultry, and fish. More resources are used to provide meat than plants

  2. Freeze fresh produce and leftovers if you don’t have the chance to eat them before they go bad. You can also do this with take-away or delivered food, if you know you will not feel like eating it the next day. You will save food and money.

  3. Shop Smart — plan meals, use shopping lists and avoid impulse buys. Don’t succumb to marketing tricks that lead you to buy more food than you need, particularly for perishable items. Though these may be less expensive per ounce, they can be more expensive overall if much of that food is discarded.

  4. Buy Funny Fruit — many fruits and vegetables are thrown out because their size, shape, or color are not “right”. Buying these perfectly good funny fruit, at the farmer’s market or elsewhere, utilizes food that might otherwise go to waste.

  5. When you go to a restaurant and are ordering seafood always ask: “Do you serve sustainable seafood?” Let your favorite businesses know that ocean-friendly seafood is on your shopping list.

  6. If you have a fruit or snack that you don’t want, don’t throw it out. Give it away to someone who needs and is asking for help.
