Given that our planet is at a dangerous crossroads and there is little time left to save it, we must take drastic individual action. Each of us can help limit global warming – if only by changing some of our daily habits.
In other words, our choices matter. About two-thirds of global greenhouse gas emissions are associated with private households. The electricity we use, the food we eat, the way we travel and the things we buy all contribute to our carbon footprint
Which is why, given that Lidl Cyprus takes its role as a leader and pioneer in protecting the environment very seriously, it has launched a digital initiative called #LidlEcoHacks, as part of its #ProjectZero actions.

In this green initiative by Lidl Cyprus, young people with environmental awareness from Cyprus and Greece have joined forces to create Lidl Eco Hacks. These are short videos tackling topics such as food waste, zero waste, and reuse and processing of old, raw and other materials, with the aim of reducing our individual environmental footprint for a more sustainable everyday life.
Elena Olympiou, radio producer, actress and ambassador of the UNRF UNIC organisation for climate change, shows us how to eliminate the use of plastic in our shopping.
