Introduction from Anna
Every year, I encourage my family to do something for Lent. Dad usually fails to give up chocolate, and Mum’s never been brave enough to give up white wine! For the last few years, each Lent we have gone vegetarian, which lead to me permanently becoming a veggie in 2017 – my sister, Esther, was wildly unimpressed as she is devoted to sausages.
This year, we decided we wanted to do something different. I suggested doing something for the environment as this is something I really care about and think we can all have an impact on. After much discussion, we decided to do something about our plastic use: we didn’t think we could eliminate it entirely, but I wanted to find ways we could cut it down.
