ways we can reduce our carbon footprint
Reduce airplane flights
airplane flights leave a huge carbon footprint and humans go on an airplane approximately 6.5 times in a year
reducing flights will reduce our carbon footprint massively
Take one flight between New York and California, and you’ve made about 20 percent of the greenhouse gases that your car gives off over the time span of an entire year.
About 20,000 planes are being used around the world, flying about three billion people every year. By 2040, more than 50,000 planes could be used, and they are expected to fly more often than they are now and we need to stop this from happening
We could increase flight and holiday prices
In 2013 people was using about 5 tonnes of carbon dioxide each in flights.
The carbon production would release massively by decreasing flights
We have to recycle and receive a fine if we don't recycle
It also reduces the need for more substances that are mined. This will stop machinery emitting carbon dioxide
This will stop machinery emitting carbon dioxide
It saves energy
This will reduce the amount of packaging we have to make
It reduces greenhouse gasses being emitted
This may also push people to do more to save the environment
It will reduce habitat destruction
This will make people see the errors of their actions
It will stop the harmful chemicals produced at landfill sites from going into the atmosphere.
We could also make more materials recyclable to make the process easier. We can do it by finding alternative ways to make the desired materials.
We can walk more
This will reduce the use of petrol and need for making it which will use less chemicals
Not only will this be good for the environment but it will improve the people's health and fitness
Because the cars aren't being used as often they wont need repairing or petrol which will save money.
no fumes are being released from the cars that aren't being driven
no traffic which saves time and it will save the other people who are in a long journey from burning more fuels than necessary
people will be earlier for work and school because there will be less people on the road
We can use biodegradable packaging
We can use materials like bamboo to reduce the use and production of plastic
Bamboo also spreads and grows quickly so it will be easily attained and its a sustainable maaterial
Biodegradable packaging also can reduce solid waste,
Biodegradable packaging can reduce water usage.
Biodegradable packaging can make the savings worth the change because of the money saved on using bamboo instead of plastic.
This is a small yet effective solution and will be more effective the more people that do it
