Reduce your Carbon Footprint

40% of UK emissions come from our homes. The average household in the UK emits 2.7 tonnes of CO2 every year from heating their home. According to the EPA, (Environmental Protection Agency) the average 4-person household produces 83,000 pounds of greenhouse gas emissions per year (20,750 pounds per person).

What is a carbon footprint?

Greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide (CO2), methane and ozone contribute to pollution, ozone depletion and global warming. Our carbon footprint refers to the net amount of greenhouse gases generated by us or things we consume, with fossil fuels being a major source.

Activities like driving a car, heating and cooling, and using electrical power from gas or coal all emit CO2. Products we buy also contribute to our carbon footprint, as most require fossil fuels for production, packaging and transportation.

Reducing our carbon footprint is entirely necessary, but the transition of change is far slower than the time we have remaining.

Tree planting

It’s now common knowledge that one of the best tools to tackle the climate crisis and keep our temperatures from rising above 1.5C is to PLANT TREES. They are also crucial in preventing ecological collapse

Trees and plants consume CO2 and help purify the air, offsetting a portion of carbon emissions. An adult tree can absorb as much as 48 pounds of CO2 per year, and can even reduce household heating and cooling costs by providing shade and insulation.

Women of Sustainability

Sustainability is the capacity to endure in a relatively ongoing way across various domains of life. In the 21st century, it refers generally to the capacity for Earth’s biosphere and human civilisation to co-exist.
Are firms with female CEOs more environmentally friendly?


Females are, stereotypically, seen as being more compassionate and caring than their male counterparts, which has prompted several studies looking into whether this stereotype bears any relation to how eco-friendly an organisation is.
What it does show is that female entrepreneurs are more likely to act on environmental issues which is a positive – not only for gender equality and the environment – but for businesses looking to improve their commitment to sustainability.
This absolutely DOES NOT mean men care less than women, nor does it mean men have no place in hierarchy and should be replaced by women.
