As the call to action to help slow climate change grows increasingly urgent, average citizens are responding. Many are eager to join the movement to reduce our collective carbon footprint in an effort to curb carbon emissions and the greenhouse effect they help to create, which is responsible in large part for raising global temperatures.
At times, this battle can seem overwhelming and many individuals feel helpless, not knowing where to start. Fortunately, there are a number of meaningful actions we can all take and many start with the things we choose to do and use every day. The key is to understand the consequences of how we go about living our daily lives and to change those that can lessen our impact upon our fragile planet. As more of us choose to do the environmentally correct thing, the positive effect will grow, creating an impetus that can significantly change our ecological impact for the better.
