Just in time for Christmas, here are a few easy online actions and interesting articles to make the world a better place,

I think I'd like to live in Tinkers Bubble in Somerset, please.

Ask supermarkets to switch to paper stemmed cotton buds (the plastic kind are cloggging up our sewers and oceans), by signing this open letter.

Support for fracking in the UK is at an all-time low. Despite the government backing fracking wherever it is proposed, people and communities object to it.  After the ratification of the Paris climate agreement the UK government needs to take action and keep fossil fuels in the ground by banning fracking in the UK.  More than 200 areas of the UK are earmarked for possible fracking - let’s stop it now before the floodgates open.

Sign Friends of the Earth's petition against Fracking.  

So, Theresa May's government wants companies to make lists available of all their foreign workers.  Bit scary, sign this petition to say that's not cool Theresa.

If I can't live in Tinkers Bubble, I'll live in this 'agrihood' in Detroit.

I post these kinds of things on twitter all month, so find me there if this is your kind of thing too!
