Reducing your carbon footprint can seem like an overwhelming task. And you may be asking yourself the question. “What difference can one person make?” We will address that later on, but one thing that helps me when I have an overwhelming task in front of me is to chip away at it bit by bit until it seems more manageable. It especially helps to start with something you are familiar with, no matter how small. At Hand and Hide we are intimately acquainted with the workings of manufacturers and company waste so this seemed like a good place to start. Here are some tips for reducing your carbon footprint by shopping smaller.
So there you have it! Although reducing our impact on the earth is a big topic you already have a few ways you can be more mindful about the way you shop and how that feeds back into the world. And, I think that if we really reflect on it, we know that our lives do make a difference and create an impact in one direction or another. We cannot change the world on our own. We need each other to do that! But we can spark a change, we can be the first to stand up for what we believe in and live it. Take these changes one step at a time and believe in your ability to make a difference. If you need more inspiration take a look at the bold words from leaders like Nelson Mandela, Mother Theresa, and JFK. All people who believed in the power of the individual and lived that belief out in their own lives.
Thanks for reading and good luck!
