Here are some easy tips on how to decrease carbon footprint, and help the environment and the people around us.
Start meat-free Mondays to get into this routine.
1) Decrease meat and dairy consumption
Animal husbandry is a serious cause of species extinction, ocean dead zones, water pollution, and habitat destruction.
2) Carpool or use public transport
Lesser number of vehicles on the roads means reduction in air and noise pollution.
3) Use menstrual cups
As opposed to pads and tampons, menstrual cups are reusable.
4) Avoid using paper
Take notes on mobile phones or computers. Even if you do use paper, don’t forget to recycle or repurpose.
5) Use electricity frugally
Open blinds or curtains and use as much natural light as possible. Don’t forget to turn off lights when not in use.
6) Use fluorescent lights
Regular incandescent light bulbs use more electricity as opposed to fluorescent lights which last longer.
