The best way to fight climate change is to reduce your own climate footprint. There are lots of things you can do to live a more climate neutral life without having to offset anything.
- Eat Wisely. Eat less animal products and more plant based and locally produced food.
- Commute Green. Take your bike to work. If that’s not possible, take the subway, the bus or the train.
- Fly less and try going to faraway places by train. Go on local holidays and have more business meetings via Skype.
- Invest Green. Invest in renewable energy funds and in green companies. Stay away from oil, coal and companies that are not taking their climate impact seriously.
There are lots of other things you can do as well. Be creative!
When you’re having a hard time reducing your climate footprint further, offset what you can’t reduce.
