The Problem:

We need everyone on the planet to take action to reduce our impact on the environment, however big or small.

My Idea:

My idea for the project was inspired by a hashtag regularly used by Millennium Kids, #1000actionsfortheplanet. I’ve started posting photos on my Instagram stories that showcase the small things that I do in my day to day life to reduce the impact that I have on the planet and its inhabitants.


The goal is to eventually get to 1000 posts, hence the hashtag. These are things like buying my groceries waste free, composting my food waste, using public transport and investing in slow fashion.

How You can help:

I’ve had a great response from my Instagram followers. I’ve had people messaging me with questions regarding what products I use and a friend that’s been inspired to start documenting her actions for the planet as well. Most of my content has been simple actions that are surprisingly easy to achieve.

If you’re interested in keeping track of what I’m up to, you can check it out and join the movement. One hashtag at a time. https://www.instagram.com/rachel__rainey/
