What is “carbon footprint”
Our carbon footprint is the amount of carbon dioxide released into the air because of our own energy needs. We need transportation, electricity, food, clothing, and other goods. Our choices can make a difference.
The mantra to lessen our carbon footprint is reduce,reuse and recycle.I will explain you all these in detail later on.
Reduce,Reuse and Recycle :
Reduce use of water by using it properly
Reduce use of fuel by driving less and using public transport
Turn off lights, TVs, computers, when you do not need them.
Use LED bulbs and energy efficient products.
Unplug any electrical or electronic gadget when not in use.
Walk or ride your bike instead of taking a car everywhere. Even a 2-mile car trip puts 2 pounds of CO2 into the atmosphere!
recycling paper, aluminum cans, cardboard, food cans, plastic, glass, newspapers, magazines, junk mail, phone books, and anything else made of paper helps to decrease our carbon footprint.
