13 Ways To Reduce Your Carbon Footprint #infographic

Faced with growing numbers of headlines warning of imminent climate change in a Hummer dealership, you could quickly get madder and upsetter than Greta Thunberg. Yet there's no need to lose faith in making our own impact against this crisis. Then concentrate on what steps each of us should take to lead more healthy lifestyles.

Let's be real — not everyone has the money for a luxury Tesla or high-end solar panels. Though a 3-minute cold shower daily might save water and energy over time, it's just not practical for everyone. And while airplane travel is another significant contributor to greenhouse gas, it is often difficult to stop (from New York to Houston, you can't rollerblade). You can drive instead, but this is just burning fossil fuels and helping to pollute the environment.

Indeed reducing plastic intake on a regular basis is a perfect starting point. Plastic pollution affects not only the seas and other bodies of water but also accelerates climate change. As WWF-Australia 's Kerri Major reports, "Plastic generates greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to our planet's warming at every stage of its life cycle." According to the Center for International Environmental Law, the 2019 global climate impact of plastic production was the equivalent of 189 coal-fired power plants.
