Hey makers, Hopefully, everything is fine! What steps do you take in your daily life to reduce your carbon footprint or the consumption you create? And if you switched to a minimalist life, how did this happen, what was your motivation?

I walk/ride my bike as much as possible, I use tote-bags when I go to the supermarket to avoid plastic bags, I use soap over packaged body wash, I use a KeepCup to get my coffee and don't buy plastic bottles. I haven't switched to a minimalist life, but I try and purchase second-hand when possible.

@audrey_rampon Very correct and important steps, I am sure you do not spend great effort to take these steps, but your contribution is really great. For the last 2 months, I have been doing researches to make a full measurement on this subject, it is very difficult to make an exact measurement, but I am sure that you have a huge impact!

nothing much, just using reusable stuff, segregating garbage, don't use plastic bags and try eating organic.

I moved from the city, 3 years ago. Living in the mountains with a community that is so closely knit with the people as well as nature. Plastic bags are banned, garbage segregation is easy, food wastage is a sin, and walking to most of the places on foot- you don't have an option for that :P Also, there is a space here that sells everything local, organic, and handmade- from food to art to home decor. We also have a dome space to exhibit what we make and rent/sell/give away whatever's taking space or is not needed anymore.

I am going to switch to an EV. Hope it will happen as soon as possible. Recently I stumbled upon this company https://carplus.co.uk/car-financ... which provides very profitable options for students or for people with bad credit score (that is exactly my case).
