The transportation of food is another common issue contributing to the deterioration of our environment. Air miles are thought to be a huge contributor to global warming, and the purchasing of foods that originate from overseas ultimately increases its demand. Wherever possible, try to purchase your food locally – not only for the benefit of your community, but also to reduce your carbon footprint. Alternatively, why not try growing your own vegetables?
Although we are clinging onto the hope that we can reverse the damage that’s been done to our environment, by simply adopting a few of the above lifestyle changes, we’ll be well on our way to reducing our individual carbon footprint – and collectively, saving the future of our planet.
