What can I do to reduce my carbon footprint?
There are many different ways an individual or business can reduce their carbon footprint. The tried and true method of “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” is a great place to start. Cultivating a mindset that takes your decisions into account, such as questioning the need to drive for a single trip compared to walking or biking (or even owning a car!), will also help address your personal carbon footprint. It is virtually impossible to negate your entire carbon footprint through reducing the purchase of or reusing necessary goods. That is why carbon offsets are so important to living a life in balance with the global climate.
