Reduce Your Carbon Footprint Practically

Tips for Reducing Your Carbon Footprint

Ok, so let’s face it.  You want to reduce your carbon footprint, but you still need to get to work and soccer practice.  Growing all your own food sounds romantic, but you’re not turning your backyard (if you have one) into Old McDonald’s farm (although the kids might love it), and you’ve grown kind of fond of electricity.  So, what’s a person to do? 

In today’s world, there are parts of our lives that, for now at least, bring a carbon footprint with them (i.e. cars, many foods, light, heat).  Carbon offsets offer us a way to balance those parts of our footprint, but offsets by themselves are not enough. 

Many ideas exist to help make a difference in our carbon consumption, and they’re not as hard as you may think.

To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the paleBLUEdot - the only home we’ve ever known
