- Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Three commonly used words, adding recycling to your daily routine doesn’t take much and helps our planet more than you think. Introducing a recycling system in your workplace and at home could spark those around you to be conscious of plastics and paper use. The trucks that transport your garbage to the landfills also burn fossil fuels.
Introducing a recycling routine is the simplest way to show your efforts in helping the planet. Taking the time to learn or teach others the importance of recycling or using reusable bags when they’re going to the grocery store, for example, are simple ways to have those around you partake in reducing carbon footprints.
- Carpool or take Public Transportation
If you have coworkers who live near you, taking turns in a carpool would not only save you some gas money and mileage but also reduce pollution. Taking public transportation, riding your bike to work, or trying out a rideshare app are also great alternatives. With fewer cars on the road, the amount of greenhouse gas emissions decrease.
