What is planetwise?

52-times a year.  Once a week.  Little changes. 


This is my pledge to help our planet.  

To make one permanent change each week in my life, for a year, that is more planetwise.

Everything starts with the individual.   Everything we do can make a difference. 


We are all connected, and if we all believe we can individually make a difference, and share our ideas - we can create a direct positive impact, and a collective positive pressure.


The big things will stay the same, and climate change will always be someone else's fault, unless we all try to make our next choice a good choice - for our planet.

Who are we?

who are we? 

(in case you've stumbled across this)

​This project started as an idea for a fun and educational family activity.  To do a little bit more, to help the planet, and keep a diary.  I have a family that is patient and supportive.  We gave it a fun name: Project Planetwise.

We are a normal family.  We recycle as much as we can.  We try to buy well, and waste as little as possible.

We soon realised how much more we could do, and that what we are doing is not enough.  With a little effort, with better choices, and with small sacrifices.


So the diary has become a blog, in the spirit of sharing positivity.  If you like what it is saying, please join in and send ideas, or comment, or share.

We can all help each other to do better, and to be more planetwise.
