Measures to improve your footprint.
Reduce your electricity consumption
Much of our electricity and heat is powered by coal, oil and gas. Use less energy by lowering your heating and cooling, switching to LED light bulbs and energy efficient electrical appliances. Switch to a wind or solar energy provider. If you can, install solar panels on your roof to generate power for your home.
Use resources positively
Wash your clothes with cold water, avoid the dryer.
Improve the choice of products you consume
To reduce your impact on the climate, buy local and seasonal products, eat more plant-based meals, and compost leftovers.
Reduce your transport emissions
For longer distances, consider taking a train or bus, avoid long-haul flights, and carpool whenever possible. Walk or ride a bicycle whenever possible. If you use the car give preference to electric vehicles.
Practice the 4 R's
Reduce, reuse, repair & recycle - the electronics, clothing and other items we buy cause carbon emissions at every point of production. Buy fewer things, buy secondhand, repair what you can, and recycle.
Make conscious choices
Everything we spend money on affects the planet. Choose products from companies that use resources responsibly and are committed to reducing their gas and waste emissions.
Call on world leaders, your city, your bank, and your employer to take urgent action for a sustainable future that leaves no one behind. Talk to your neighbors, colleagues, friends, and family.
