How Can I Reduce my Footprint?

Everyone has an environmental footprint. It comes from all the things you do that have an impact on our planet – the energy you use, the things you buy, the food you eat.

By making changes to our lives, like switching to more sustainable everyday habits, we can reduce our environmental footprint and the damage we do to our planet.

This past year has shown us how connected we all are. Individual actions might seem small but, collectively, they can make all the difference in the world.

Eating a more planet-friendly diet, switching to renewable energy, talking about climate change, sharing tips with friends, organising as a community, calling for change from our businesses and government – it all adds up.

By showing we care about our planet, by doing something about it and by talking to friends and family we also inspire change in the people around us.

Before long, we’re part of a powerful movement that governments and businesses can’t ignore. At this point, businesses are forced to make big changes to tackle their much larger footprints and governments introduce laws that make it easier for everyone to tackle their own footprints.
