Climate crisis and the zero waste movement

Climate crisis and the zero waste movement

David Attenbourough says 'Humanity is at a crossroads'. So how can we do our bit to help?

He's the 94-year-old broadcaster and naturalist whose documentaries are adored by fans across the globe for decades. But it seems Sir David Attenborough has now taken to social media because 'the world is in trouble', and he became the fastest person to reach a million followers on Instagram in the process.

But is it falling on deaf ears? As we edge closer and closer to a climate crisis, what can we all do to help? In a new film 'A Life on Our Planet' his message is clear - we're running out of time.

Joining us this morning via skype was environmental scientist Dr Cara Augustenborg and we were also joined by Elaine Butler, sustainable blogger here in studio:
