  • Five easy changes you can make to make a small difference.

A recent study by Surfers Against Sewage found Coca Cola to be worst polluter washed up on the UK coastline. They seem pretty quiet on the matter. It is worrying, and it is difficult. But what can we, as individuals, do? A bigger impact can be made by a large number doing things imperfectly than a small number (1% aside), perfectly.
