Welcome to GreenLiving, a website about positive lifestyle choices.

The Brecon Beacons

We're increasingly aware of climate change and its impacts in the form of floods, hurricanes, drought and other "extreme" weather events. Now there is consensus among climate scientists that global warming is due to man-made greenhouse gas emissions. At the same time another threat is materialising - that of Peak Oil - the imminent peak and then decline in fossil fuel production worldwide. Peak Oil will make energy prohibitively expensive and progressively more scarce as it becomes less economic to extract oil.

Despite the mounting evidence, many of us feel powerless to take action, preferring to leave it to the politicians and that elusive 'someone else', in the hope that it will all be OK in the end. Unfortunately, it is becoming increasingly clear that we need to take action now in order to safeguard our planet and livelihoods.

This website aims to provide positive examples of how you, the individual, can take action to address these threats, reduce your carbon footprint - and improve the quality of your life. It is based on both practical experience and research, particularly in the field of permaculture.

In addition, I can provide advice on many topics covered in this site - if you'd like to find out more, please read about the services I can offer you.

I hope that you find this site enjoyable and become inspired to take action, now! If you have any suggestions or queries, please contact me using this feedback form, or email enquiries@greenliving.co.uk
