Leaving Not A Trace: How To Reduce Your Carbon And Currency Footprint In 5 Biodegradable Steps

“Your beliefs become your thoughts,
Your thoughts become your words,
Your words become your actions,
Your actions become your habits,
Your habits become your values,
Your values become your destiny.”
~ Mahatma Gandhi

By examining our personal currency and carbon footprints and taking positive actions towards reducing them, we are not only carving the way for others to follow, but we will also be celebrated (rather than told we’re weird) for doing so.

We may consume only local strawberries and travel between countries on foot, but unless more incentives are supported on the governmental level, it’s hard to expect big outcomes any time soon. Setting energy development standards, investing in research and alternative sources, educating people on how to decrease consumption… these are the steps we need to demand our policymakers to do in the first place.
