What do you do to lead a sustainable lifestyle?

I try my best to only use reusable, environmentally friendly products whenever possible. I’m cutting down on the amount of single-use plastics I use on a regular basis, and always ask for no plastic cutlery (sometimes just a fork) when I order in with delivery services. As individuals, our personal actions are like drops in a vast ocean. Together, we can make waves and drive change on a bigger level.

How would you convince someone who believes that climate change is a hoax?

What I can do to try to educate them is to respect science and the plethora of evidence many people have gathered. Hoax or not, the evidence is there: The polar caps are melting, sea levels are rising, bushfires are getting worse each year, entire species are going extinct, and the air pollution in some cities are alarmingly hazardous. More importantly, what are we going to do about them?
