There's a New Eco King on the Throne

Think YOU’RE never gonna move up at your job? Well hey, sometimes patience pays off. Last week the most long-suffering man in the history of the English monarchy finally got his big promotion.

There’s a lot of talk about King Charles, but we’re going to focus on one of the most positive headlines about the dude: he’ll go down in history as England’s first “Climate King.”

You might not know this if, like us, you aren’t from jolly ole England, but our man Charlie has been a champion for climate change action for the last six decades. You know, back when literally three other people gave a shit about the planet. He holds the ultimate “I cared about the environment before the environment was cool” card.

He even broke tradition and made a slow fashion statement at his coronation by rewearing garments that his ancestors wore.

Here are some of his other climate achievements:

  • In 1985, King Charles turned his Highgrove Estate farm into an organic farm.
  • For several years, he has publicly released his annual carbon footprint in an effort to be transparent about how he’s reducing his impact.
  • King Charles has owned the same Aston Martin car for 50 years, and it’s been modified to run on leftover English wine whey from cheese manufacturing.
  • In 2007, he established The Prince’s Rainforest Project to raise awareness about deforestation.
  • King Charles has recently worked with the Space Directorate of the U.K.'s Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) on initiatives for more sustainable space exploration

Hold up a sec though, mates. Before we break out into a proper knees-up bash, we feel the need to point out that there’s a lot of problematic and not-so-sustainable stuff about the English monarchy. Plus, the crown doesn’t play a direct role in policy-making to implement more climate solutions in England.

But it is cool that he’s been championing the planet for way longer than most people and his voice can have a major influence for good here. And hey, if nothing else, he’s proof that it’s never too late for a major career change. Cheers!
