How do we reduce our carbon emission by using simple ways?
Every person in the world makes a carbon emission. But our carbon emission considerably depending on our lifestyle. Make my family (me) a little greener with several simple steps and convenient methods to reduce my family’s (my) carbon emission. I think that to reduce carbon emission is a really big thing for the class. However, through the course, I changed my mind. Reducing carbon emission doesn’t need to involve a radical lifestyle. There are many simple ways. I can contribute to improving our environment in simple ways.
I need to measure my carbon emission. For example, how many days do I drive for a month? How many days do I wash cloth for a week? How much do I make food waste for a month? How many light do I use for the day? I will record my consumption of carbon emission.
I need to establish a particular goal. For example, how much do I reduce food waste? Until when?
I need to make a particular action reduce carbon emission.
I have a plan which is a public transportation tour with my daughter. Usually, I used to car to go anywhere with daughter, so my daughter can see a bus only in a book. My daughter asked me why bus stopped the bus stop. Using public transportation, I will reduce carbon emission and expand my daughter’s cognition.
