Call You And Yours: Are you struggling to keep up with action on the environment?

Do you think that small actions will help the planet or are we unlikely to make a difference at a personal level?

Are you struggling to keep up with action on the environment?

A new survey suggests that climate change is leading to rows, as younger people pressure others in their households to do more.

They're inspired by environmental campaigners and television programmes like Seven Worlds: One Planet. They want their families to fly less, use less plastic, abandon the car and increase recycling.

But research from Friends of the Earth and Good Energy suggests there's a disconnect between the behaviours people think will have a positive impact on the planet and the ones that will actually make the biggest difference. Are the small actions we're being urged to take for the environment having any effect? Are they worth falling out over?

Let us know what your experiences have been. Are you struggling to keep up with action on the environment?
