    Time to ‘renew my vows’

    A bit like when a couple decide to renew their vows after a rocky patch in a marriage, I feel it’s time for me to renew my vows regarding living in a more sustainable way.

    We were doing so well pre-pandemic but over the last 16 months we’ve slipped. It just became too much to think about and bad habits have crept in again. The only positive I can think of is that we haven’t flown for 2 years.

    So I’m going to make a new start and redouble my efforts. Has the pandemic affected your efforts to live sustainably?
