Some time ago I asked people on Instagram what they do in order to reduce their carbon footprint. I am by no means an expert or guru, but I am trying to learn and work within myself to do better. The responses were pretty amazing and I feel that more people care about our Earth than we may think. It is the only one we have and making a sound change really does start with us.
Check out the amazing responses and feedback I got! People who take steps to reduce their carbon footprint vs. people who don’t.
77% – Yes
23% – No
This is a good number, and was out of 35 people. I really feel that people who say no are just like me; not sure where to even start. There are so many layers to this and we live life based on what is convenient and cost-effective. Many thing that are good for us and the environment have a hefty price tag.
These are all the great responses and many of these are things I have never thought much about.
So on this Earth Day in 2019, I pledge to do better. I pledge to be mindful of how much I waste, use plastic and contribute to the detriment of our cracking and fragile environment. I pledge to not continue to take for granted the things that come naturally.
Please share any tips you have on working toward a more sustainable lifestyle. I would love to hear from you!
Thank you for stopping by!
