carbon footprint

What can you do to reduce your carbon footprint?

Consider the resources used in the things you buy and services you use

Carbon footprint You have less control over the carbon footprint of the items you buy, the services you use and the places you live in or visit. But we all have a shared responsibility for the carbon footprint of these things and could reduce our contribution to this share, for example, by buying fewer new items and recycling and reusing as much as possible. If you are buying goods, look for smaller, lighter options that are made locally, with sustainable materials and that use less packaging.
