“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now” – Chinese proverb
Are you passionate about protecting the environment but not sure where to start? Well, let’s ‘sow the seed’ with 10 simple examples of how you can reduce your carbon footprint at home, school and in your local community.
Another way to reduce your carbon footprint is to donate your unwanted goods to a friend, a charity service or at the Reuse Hub. The Reuse Hub is a community program run by Planet Ark that provides people the opportunity to donate, trade or exchange pre-loved items. By reusing or sharing a product, instead of buying a new one, you reduce the consumption of water, fuel, energy and valuable natural resources, as well as reducing waste and greenhouse gas emissions.
