Green Councillors' pledges

Members of the Green Group in Liverpool City Council are all committed to living according to our core principle of respecting planetary boundaries. As a result, in recent years we have all chosen to make lifestyle choices to reflect this, but know that like everyone else, we must do even more to help Liverpool achieve net zero emissions.

Lawrence was one of the members who established Liverpool Green Party in 1980. He is a long-time, committed vegetarian and cyclist. He has, over the years made countless adjustments to his lifestyle, but he pledges to continue cutting his carbon footprint even further and pressing the City Council and other organisations, to do so too.

Sarah pledges to grow as much of her own food as possible on her recently acquired allotment and to reduce waste by making use of local refill options.

Anna is vegan and her family do not own a car. She pledges not to fly in 2020, missing visiting her family in Poland

Tom has not flown for 10 years (apart from his grandparent’s funerals in Holland) and has been vegan for two years. He pledges to only buy second hand or ethically produced clothes and shoes, and will replace his work vehicle with an electric vehicle within two years.
