ECO-GIRL: Croxley schoolgirl makes headlines with climate activism

 Published on: 8th October 2022   |   By: Bryn Holmes   |   Category: Uncategorized

A young Croxley girl has taken her message of fighting climate change to a national level.

Liberty, aged 11, recently made appearances on Sky News’ FYI show and in children’s news publication FirstNews, explaining why she chooses to be a vegan and how that helps in the battle for the environment.

Speaking to CROXLEYnews, she said: “I’m a vegan because I don’t think it’s fair to eat animals. It’s also not good for the planet.

“I’ve heard that the farming of animals is responsible for at least 14.5% of global greenhouse gas emissions. It needs cutting down and the only way I think that can happen is if we eat less meat.

“Plus, you can make practically anything vegan with a twist.”

In the feature, she took her omnivore friend Pippa to a vegan food convention at London’s ExCeL centre to try and convince her of the diet’s benefits.

Liberty also works hard in other areas to promote environmental protection, doing her bit at her local school, for which she and her class earned Green badges from the iconic children’s magazine show, Blue Peter.

“I really care about nature and the environment; we need to protect our planet. I wanted to encourage others to help.

“As Head of the Eco Council at my school, I promoted reusing and recycling and organised litter-picking activities. I challenged my class to go vegetarian or vegan for two weeks so we could earn The Green Blue Peter Badge. Everyone gained their badge!”
