The news regarding climate change hasn’t been a positive one last year, and this year didn’t start off well either. Last year was full of natural storms that devastated different parts of the world, countless lives were lost due to heavy runs, flash flooding, forest fires, snowstorms etc. The magnitude of these storms served as grim reminders of what is to come if we continue to keep such a lax attitude towards climate change.
While governments around the world and lawmakers scramble to come up with possible laws and solutions when it comes to dealing with this situation, it is important to remember that they aren’t the only ones accountable. Each of us has an individual responsibility towards the planet, and it is important for us to do whatever we can to keep it safe.
This is where individual accountability comes in, so we are responsible when it comes to which companies we choose to support, what eco-friendly decisions we make on a regular basis and so on. An eco-friendly life isn’t impossible, in fact it can become really easy once you get the necessary information. The most important step we need to do is to do what we can to reduce our carbon footprint, which is possible if we go eco-friendly. This means swapping your cars with electric cars or hybrids, you can change how you move from place to place, adult kick scooters are now becoming popular as an urban means of transport that doesn’t burden the environment. Being eco-friendly also means not supporting companies that don’t have green initiatives, switching to green and renewable energy like solar energy to power our homes and so on. It is important for us to do what we can to help the planet so that the generations after us don’t have to clean up and suffer because of the problems we created.
