NEW research has found that older generations are living greener lives than younger generations.
A survey by Censuswide for Aviva asked 4,000 people from different age groups (16-24, 25-34, 35-44, 45-54, 55+) about the things they do to reduce their environmental impact, like whether they avoid single- use plastic or buy second-hand clothes.
In almost every category, over-55s were most likely to be taking steps already, except for becoming vegan. Just 2% of over-55s say that they’ve gone vegan, while 9% of under-25s say they eat
a purely plant-based diet.
