Everyone, from world leaders to everyday individuals, can make a difference and help fight climate change. You can adopt some simple behavioral shifts to cut greenhouse gas emissions and curb climate change:
Live smarter: Reduce waste. Discarded packaging in 2005 in the US alone released 99 million metric tons of carbon dioxide. It would take almost 83 million acres of fir or pine trees more than 1 year to store all that carbon!
Travel smarter:Walk or bike instead of driving a car. In urban areas, bike paths, footpaths, and public transportation could reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 20-50% by 2050.
Eat smarter: Don’t trash food. About a third of the food produced in the world for human consumption is trashed – this wasted food has a carbon footprint of about 3.3 billion tons of carbon dioxide every year!
Take the pledge to reduce your footprint and tell your friends!Sign up
