30 Ways You Can Save The Planet By Reducing Your Carbon Footprint
Telling people about the imminent, all-too-real dangers of climate change can often feel like talking to a brick wall. It isn't always that people aren't interested, it's usually because they haven't the time to sit and talk about the biggest macro issue of our time when their micro concerns, such as income, family and personal goals seem more pressing- and that's perfectly normal.
However, you don't have to let go of everything you know and love to make a positive impact on helping the planet. It is the little things across the globe that all add up and make a massive difference. And in an age where it is vital we cut down on our waste and become more environmentally conscious, we look at a few ways you can cut down on your carbon footprint.
Here are 30 examples.
1. Reduce Air Travel
Air travel is usually a person's largest component of their carbon footprint, especially for frequent flyers. The advent of cheap airfares and low-cost airlines has meant that travel has become more accessible to many millions of people, but the environmental impact is quite drastic.
That is not to say stop traveling and exploring the world but consider your options as trains are far more environmentally friendly or just by taking a few fewer flights.
