“No challenge poses a greater threat to future generations than climate change” – Barack Obama
Climate change leads to so many problems such as:
All of the above cause of a loss of habitat, which could threaten the biodiversity in Seychelles.
The question is: what can we do about it? Simple… Reduce our carbon footprint! By attending the Climate Change Workshop held by Sustainability for Seychelles, I learnt about effortless ways to be more environmentally friendly.
Turn it offThe lights… the television… the fan… the air conditioner… Whatever you’re not using, switch it off… What about when taking a shower, brushing your teeth & washing the dishes? Does the water really need to be running the whole time?
Walk the TalkFeeling like you’re ready to help reduce the rate of climate change? Then why not walk to nearby shops rather than taking the car? Not only will it reduce the amount of carbon dioxide emission, but it will also benefit your health.
Be LocalWhen products are imported, they travel long distances to reach us. Whatever the method of transport is, it is almost guaranteed to cause air pollution. If it were possible, I’d buy only local products! Support our local farmers. Why not even plant some vegetables and fruits at home?
Use RainwaterRainwater can be used for so many things. With a rainwater tank, you can wash you car, water your plants & wash your clothes at basically no cost! In fact, rainwater can be used for anything that doesn’t require treated water. How great is that?
I truly hope that my blog will convince you to be Greener. Have you any other ideas you would like to share? Please drop a comment.
