The golden rule of Reduce, Reuse and Recycle can help reduce carbon footprints.
@elena_cirera Very true Elena! Is that something you are also doing at your workplace?
@caroline_schneider Yes, we always try to reduce carbon footprints at our workplace. We have minimized the use of printers and recorded most of the data electronically. We always consider our environment in the workplace.
@elena_cirera That's amazing! I hope that more and more companies follow your example😌
Move Your Money To Make A Difference. Eat more plant foods and fewer animal foods. Try other modes of transport. Switch to a low-carbon energy provider. Reduce, reuse, and recycle to waste less. Rethink your fashion choices. Choose energy-efficient appliances. Travel less or travel wisely. Hope This Helps, Peter
