Six key lifestyle changes can help avert the climate crisis

People in well-off countries can help avert climate breakdown by making six relatively straightforward lifestyle changes, according to research from three leading institutions

  • Eat a largely plant-based diet, with healthy portions and no waste

  • Buy no more than three new items of clothing per year

  • Keep electrical products for at least seven years

  • Take no more than one short haul flight every three years and one long haul flight every eight years

  • Get rid of personal motor vehicles if you can – and if not keep hold of your existing vehicle for longer

  • Make at least one life shift to nudge the system, like moving to a green energy, insulating your home or changing pension supplier
