What does carbon neutral mean? And what can we do?

Everything you do that produces carbon dioxide -- from driving to powering your home and more -- makes up your carbon footprint.  Being "carbon neutral" means that you, or the operations of your business or your national economy, emit the same amount of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere that you offset by some other means. Adding solar panels to your home, or switching to an electric vehicle are examples of things you can do to reduce your carbon dioxide output.


What does carbon neutral mean?Produced Emissions=Reduced Emissions by offsetting


Achieving carbon neutrality means that that your carbon dioxide output has a net neutral impact on the environment, and it can help stem the effects of climate change. Greenhouse gasses like carbon dioxide increase average temperatures worldwide, which in turn contribute to rising sea levels, changing weather patterns and other factors associated with climate change.


5 tips to reduce your family's carbon footprint

Let us look at some simple ways to reduce our carbon footprint. Although they are small details, when they are combined, they can have a significant impact on your environment.


How to reduce your home’s carbon footprint

Let's start by reducing household carbon emissions. This way you can immediately start living a more environmentally friendly life, because most of them are fairly fast and easy to implement.


1. Insulate your home-reduce energy, reduce your carbon footprint and household bills:

Heating your living space can be an expensive and energy-intensive process. By insulating places such as attics and walls, you can ensure that your home is warm in winter and cool in summer.


2. Switch to renewable energy-solar, wind or hydropower

Energy suppliers around the world are now offering greener electricity prices. By switching to solar, wind, or hydropower companies, you can reduce household emissions and save energy bills. You can even install solar panels if they are readily available where you live.


3. Buy energy-saving appliances-energy-saving appliances, turn off appliances that are not in use

Many countries now demonstrate the efficiency of specific products, which means you can make wise choices. Whether you are buying energy-saving bulbs or choosing high-energy appliances, you can make your home more environmentally friendly. Also, make sure to turn off and unplug anything you are not using.


4. Save water-turn off the faucet

Energy and resources are needed to treat water and transport it to our homes. More importantly, once heated there, it is also very energy intensive. Therefore, by reducing usage, you can help protect the environment and reduce your carbon footprint. When brushing your teeth, try to turn off the faucet, use a shower instead of the bathtub, and only boil the water you need.


5. Change your diet-do not waste food
The food we eat has a major impact on the environment. For example, the production of meat and dairy products requires a lot of land, water and energy. They also produce large amounts of methane, which is a greenhouse gas. Do as much as you want, without wasting ingredients.
