1. Reducing Meat consumption
Eating or consuming fruits, grains or vegetables are not affecting carbon footprint, On the other hand, meat products and dairy cause up to 14% of carbon emissions as they have to be processed in factories.
2. Local Food
Food from local production is helping in reducing Transport greenhouse gasses emissions. When food is imported, transportation needs to use more fuel for far distances reasons as well as keeping the quality of food.
3. Old and Recycled Clothes are also a fashion!
Making clothes causes a lot of greenhouse gasses emissions, they also pollute nature as they have fast production causing factories to ignore waste guidelines.
Most shops and stores use harmful materials for their bags, like plastic bags. Reusable bags are reducing carbon emissions and they have a long lifespan as well. Get your reusable natural cotton tote bag right now from TerraMavi!
5. Reduce Electricity usage
Buy LEDs, a type of light bulb that last longer as they consume less energy. Turning off lights when they are not needed is also a way of reducing carbon footprint. You can also switch to reusable energy like solar energy if you are living in a sunny area most of the year.
