More and more people are learning about the state of our planet and are making constant efforts to do their part in ending global warming and climate change. Even businesses are turning to greener practices to do their part.

So what’s the main culprit behind the chaos in the environment? Carbon Dioxide. Carbon dioxide is emitted into the air when coal, oil, and other non-renewable resources (fossil fuels) are burned for everyday energy usage.

We use energy generated by the burning of these fossil fuels every day to power our cars, homes, and other pieces of technology. By eliminating or reducing our use of fossil fuels, we’re lowering our contribution to climate change and global warming… If Seychelles is finding ways to put a halt to climate change, surely we can too.

But it starts with us. At home, in conversation, in the kitchen, and in every aspect of our daily lives, there are things we can do to make a difference. If you want to do your part, here’s how you can be the difference the world needs.

How You Can Do Your Part in Ending Climate Change and Global Warming

Talk About It to the Masses

What spreads faster than wildfires? Word of mouth. Talk to your friends, family, coworkers, and city/state representatives; voice your concerns. Sometimes the best way to ensure your voice is heard is to go straight to your elected officials. This doesn’t mean storming government buildings and causing, riots but things like email, social media, and writing a basic letter voicing your concerns will oftentimes make them give your concerns a second look.

Power Your Home With Electricity Generated From Renewable Resources

As you know, burning fossil fuels does considerable damage to the environment, but that’s the standard way people power their homes… yet, it doesn’t have to be. The only reason people haven’t made the switch is that they just don’t know too much about it… But you could be their voice of reason. Just like talking about it to the masses is mentioned above, you can do the same thing about electricity generated through renewable resources.

Stop Wasting Food

You may not realize it but 10% of US energy goes into food production, meaning this energy is used to grow, process, pack, and ship food all over the world… And guess how much of it ends up in landfills… 40%.

Not only are there people starving in foreign countries but there are people right here in the US who are starving as well. So basically, there’s perfectly good food being thrown away that could go to families in need. But also wasting food just adds to the world’s unnecessary energy consumption as well. If we could make efforts to waste less the world would be in a better state than it is.

Stop Wasting Water

The less water we waste the less carbon pollution we’re creating. So, what does that mean? That means to take shorter showers, turn the water off while brushing your teeth, and only wash clothes and use dishwashers when you have full loads to wash. By implementing these daily habits, you’ll definitely be doing your part in helping save the world.
