Rewilding is about large scale ecological restoration of the natural landscape by allowing nature to do its own thing. Rewilding is a source of hope and joy that one day everyone living or visiting Scotland will be able to experience the magic of our native natural ecosystem as it should be. The good news is that there are organisations with very dedicated people working to help return big swathes of land to diverse forest full of wildlife like red squirrels and wildcats. At Skirr we value sustainability from every angle of our product creation, from ingredients to packaging and shipping. But for us it goes deeper than that and we consider the health of the soil where our ingredients grow and the kind of world we want to live and work in. Nature is fundamental to our understanding of sustainability and we are supporters of rewilding Scotland.
There are probably more options than you would first think when it comes to making personal choices that have a positive impact on climate change. We have been conditioned to believe that when we adapt our lifestyles to help combat global warming, we will feel more limited, it might be less attractive and not as adventurous. We will no longer be able to idolise a jet set lifestyle that has previously been seen by many to be the ultimate dream. I want to give you more ideas about personal change that you can make which might not just help tackle climate change, especially if we all push for societal and cultural too, but options that you might just find it gives you more pleasure from taking the slow and sustainable approach to outdoor sports and it might even change your mindset to life itself!
