Transportation can have a huge impact on our carbon footprint.
Did you know that exhaust fumes is one of the main perpetrators of climate change, global warming, air pollution and increased respiratory health problems?

A few ways we can reduce energy consumption is by turning off electronics when not in use, shutting off lights when they're not needed or simply taking shorter showers.
3. Reduce, Reuse and Recycle
Increase in consumption and waste means more landfills are required.
A few of the drastic effects of landfills include air pollution, ground water pollution, as well as soil and land pollution...
This is why you should apply “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” as a mantra in your daily life!
Find innovative ways to reuse or repurpose items you already own.
Avoid single-use throwaways such as water bottles or plastic bags, and always recycle unwanted items. These simple changes in lifestyle can make a great positive environmental impact!
4. Shop Sustainable
Every choice you make as a consumer has a direct impact on the environment.
