Here are some easy tips on how to reduce your carbon footprint:
- Reduce, REUSE, REUSE, REUSE, REUSE, REUSE and recycle! This especially goes for non-biodegradables such as plastic and Styrofoam but also for everything else. I make some homemade Jams, so I keep the store bought containers and reuse them. Then recycle. (That's not really raspberry jam, it's home-made carrot jam. Go ahead and judge, I think carrot jam is delicious!)
- Turn off things when not in use. This goes for the lights, electronic appliances and the water faucet!
- Plant trees, flowers, herbs. It's not just good for the environment, it's personally rewarding too.
- Insulate your home (saves on the bills too!)
