Carmel's actions

Economy & Communities

Host a Garage/Rummage/Yard Sale

A garage, rummage or yard sale is a great way to keep your carbon footprint lower rather than contributing to the demand for newly manufactured goods, including their packaging and shipping. Reuse can also give new life for an item you no longer need/use, but someone else will appreciate!

COMPLETED
ONE-TIME ACTION

Climate & Ecosystems

Sustainable Transportation

Check action if 90% of your transportation usage each day is sustainable/low-emission. This includes: walking/running, biking/e-bikes/velomobiles, public transportation, electric/Hydrogen car, carpooling. As much as possible, don't fly or use gas cars. ............................................................... STATS: Road travel accounts for ~75% of transport emissions. Most of this comes from passenger vehicles – cars and buses – which contribute 45.1%. The other 29.4% comes from trucks carrying freight. Since the entire transport sector accounts for 21% of total emissions, and road transport accounts for three-quarters of transport emissions, road transport accounts for 15% of total global CO2 emissions.
