It is important to note that there are no individual efforts too that are too small. When it comes to reducing carbon emissions and the most responsibility lies with corporations.
The responsibility lies with both individuals and corporations. We must be concerned about the state of the planet. It is our responsibility to take care of the state of our planet.
Your effort no matter how small can make a big difference. As small as changing the light bulb in your room to a more energy-efficient one.
It can help reduce your carbon footprint to a reasonable level. There is no effort that is more important than the other as far as reducing carbon footprint is concerned.
There are a lot of things responsible for producing waste that contributes to the carbon footprint. Some of the major activities that contribute to carbon emissions include the burning of coal and fossil fuel, and deforestation among others.
As individuals, we can start by electing public officials who believe in having a de-carbonized economy. Also, the choices we make affect our carbon footprint, this starts with our lifestyle.
Choices of the kind of meat we eat, the clothing we wear, and our mode of transportation. Even the products we buy and consume. It all adds to or reduces our carbon footprint.
For example, consuming less red meat, and dairy products, biking instead of driving, spending less time in the shower, switching off electrical gadgets that are not in use, and using renewable energy sources all can help in reducing our carbon footprint.
It is good to be aware of your impact on the environment you live in as it is by this you can make conscious efforts to improve in areas that require a change.
All corporations and governments should enact policies that are for reducing greenhouse gases to ensure a sustainable environment.
Hence, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to have incentives for environmentally safe behaviors of people. Energy-efficient gadgets and appliances should be developed by companies.
The task of reducing carbon footprint is a collective effort between individuals, corporations, and the government. The more the efforts channeled towards reducing greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, the better it would be for us and the planet. BalancedEarth.org can help with the programs that we offer.
