We separate our waste, take shorter showers and there has been an increase in roof-mounted solar panels. Climate psychologist at TU Delft Gerdien de Vries, sees that in the Netherlands we are trying to put our greenest foot forward. Yet according to her, we find it difficult to live wholly sustainably. “Particularly in the area of sustainable consumerism we have a long way to go. We continue to use unsustainable packaging, our meat consumption has risen once more and we are still happy to book flights to go on holiday. Our choices may sometimes be led by financial considerations, but most of all we find it difficult to break habits."
