We’ve been reading a lot about the idea of reducing one’s carbon footprint as one of the
main means to reduce carbon emission which are deemed to be the main factor in
enhancing global warming. If you’re curious about checking out your carbon footprint, have
a look here [Carbon Footprint Calculator].
While an active approach to changing your lifestyle based on carbon emissions might not be for everyone, it can still be an interesting thought process to review what we eat or where
we travel and approaching our regular habits from a less obvious perspective. Have you, for example, thought about where that apple comes from that you’re eating? Supermarkets
offer a wide variety of apples which can be locally source but also internationally from
another country or even another continent.
There’s a couple of interesting initiatives that aim to tackle the emission problem from
various stand points. For example, bio-bean [https://www.bio-bean.com/renewals/coffee-
recycling/] is a UK company using coffee grounds to create logs and pellets. With this they
reduce the gases that develop during the natural decompositions process and create a new
energy resource at the same time.
Another fun option is growing some of your fruit or veggies at home. While this is not as
easy for metropolitans without a garden, there’s now even options to grows your herbs and
smaller fruit and vegetable at home with indoor smart gardens. Your harvest is organic and
the energy you need to maintain it is less than having your tomatoes shipped from e.g. Italy
