Carbon footprint: what is it and why should we be concerned?

Why carbon footprint is formed

How to reduce your carbon footprint in everyday life

  • Buy local produce. This is important because transporting food, albeit a short distance, leaves a carbon footprint.
  • Buy only what you need. This applies to both clothes and products.
  • Buy from trusted companies that reduce their environmental and carbon footprint, ideally with eco-labels on their products
  • Switch to “conscious consumption”. Try to find a balance between your personal comfort and the good for the planet. Stop using your car by switching to public transport or cycling.
