Scottish people are very ecologically aware. The Scottish land has always been considered one of the most beautiful wildlife areas in Europe and its residents are doing all they can to keep it this way.
In the beginning of the 20th century the topic of ecology almost didn’t exist worldwide. Industrialization took its toll on all heavily industrialized areas but not all of them were able to fight with it later. Scotland was able to partially resist this growth of various heavy industries.
Scots feel a strong bond with their land and they are working hard on restoring what was damaged. Not only do they protect the wildlife, but also during the last years, the natural lifestyle has been actively reintroduced.
In the big picture, the government and various organisations are constantly introducing and developing ecology-awareness programmes in many areas. Scotland is the leading country in the Eco-Schools programme that is supposed to help raise a new generation of eco-friendly young people.
Also, this year a new project has come to life, called Zero Waste Plan. It will integrate the activities of: Waste Aware Scotland, WRAP Scotland, Keep Scotland Tidy, Remade Scotland, Envirowise in Scotland, NISP in Scotland and some programmes delivered by the Community Recycling Network for Scotland.
Scots, what is well known, take much pride in their livestock – the Scottish sheep are one of the most famous topics for postcards. What is more important – the beautiful pasturages are the best way of raising livestock, natural feeding and breeding make the animals healthier, their wool better quality and their meat tastier.
Recently there has been a huge growth in eco-food sale, the Scots are buying more and more healthy food from natural sources. Overall, the ecological quality of Scotland’s life is constantly growing and, hopefully, we will be able to enjoy the area’s beauty in all its aspects.
