7 actions to fight against climate change

All of us can help to limit climate change. In this article we introduce you to 7 actions that you can actually do against it. 

1, Save energy at home

The change starts in our households. We should not use unnecessary  electric power or pay more attention to their usage. Much of this energy is powered by coal, oil and gas. To give you a few examples how you can save electricity: Use less energy by lowering your heating and cooling, switching to LED light bulbs and energy-efficient electric appliances, washing your laundry with cold water, or hanging things to dry instead of using a dryer. 

2, Change your transportation

The roads are packed with gas or diesel burning vehicles. Walking or riding a bike will reduce greenhouse gas emission. Furthermore save you from the stress in traffic and help your health and fitness. 

3,Eat more vegetables

By choosing a vegetarian diet instead of one loaded with animal products, individuals can dramatically reduce the amount of land, water, and oil resources that they consume and the amount of pollution they otherwise might cause. Switching from a mixed to a vegetarian diet can reduce your carbon footprint by up to 500 kilograms of CO2e per year (or up to 900 kilograms for a vegan diet).

5, Throw less food away

One third of all the food that is produced for human consumption is wasted. When we waste food, we waste all the resources that go into producing and transporting the food, such as land, water and fuel use, without gaining any of the benefits of feeding people. When food ends up in landfill it also contributes to greenhouse gas emissions. Food waste remains a problem in Europe and around the world.

6,Reduce, reuse, repair, recycle

Electronics, clothes, and other items we buy cause carbon emissions at each point in production, from the extraction of raw materials to manufacturing and transporting goods to market. To protect our climate, buy fewer things, shop second-hand, repair what you can, and recycle. 

7 Speak up, inspire!

One of the most effective and easiest ways to fight against climate change is to speak up and motivate others. First you can just start to speak and remind your family, friends,neighbors, colleuges how to live more sustainably . Let business owners know you support bold changes. Appeal to local and world leaders to act now. 

Climate action is a task for all of us. And it concerns all of us. No one can do it all alone . Take your part!
