Carbon emissions can show up in many surprising ways in our life. I will calculate the carbon emissions associated with my household and consider how lifestyle changes could reduce the carbon footprint and impacts on the environment.

COMPLETED
ONE-TIME ACTION

Action Track: Community

Borrow Before I Buy

Why buy something I will only use once or a few times if someone nearby has it for me to borrow, and why not share something I have that someone may only need a few times a year? To reduce my consumption and waste, I will create or support the sharing economy with friends, family, colleagues or neighbors.

    Drinking water is the source of life. We cannot survive without an adequate supply of water. It is not only crucial for our physical health, but also for the preservation of the environment and the promotion of economic development.

    Have you ever thought that you can contribute to sustainability by growing your own fruit or vegetables in your garden?
    Vegetables or fruit that do not meet the specifications are not wasted and you save on unnecessary packaging

    "Reusable products are a sustainable alternative to single-use items. They are designed to be used multiple times, reducing waste and contributing to environmental conservation. From reusable shopping bags to water bottles and cloth diapers, there is a wide range of options available to help minimize our ecological footprint. By embracing reusable products, we can make a positive impact on environmental protection through conscious consumption."
