‘We must stop just thinking plastic bags and energy-saving light bulbs; we must stop filling our petrol tanks, oil tanks and supermarket shopping trolleys without thought for our impact on life elsewhere in the planet.’ (Baglady, 2009)

The ASAP Pledge

Make your contribution to the new ASAP World [As Sustainably as Possible] by pledging to give up one thing, and take up one thing. It’s dead simple!

Giving up: think about your current lifestyle and your impact on the planet. Eg: wasting water when cleaning teeth, leaving lights on, standbys on, taking plastic bags at shops, driving. Choose one thing to give up that is relevant to you.

Taking up: think of one positive thing you can do, with a beneficial effect on our environment. Eg: switch off appliances not in use, buy a reusable shopping bag, choose loose vegetables not pre-packaged, grow something; compost, take public transport more, bike or even walk more.

In the form below, enter your name, place, and make your pledge to give up, take up. Email is optional, but will help us keep in touch. We’ve a lot to do!

Baglady is starting a pledge page to show the world what people are pledging to give up, take up.

Join the first pledger, Lord Mayor of Belfast, Naomi Long, make your pledge and help Stop Climate Chaos.

If you’ve taken the pledge and want to let others know and pass the idea on, you can grab a badge for your blog or website here. If you’d like to gather pledges when you’re away from the computer, you can download printable Pledge Cards here.
