How Can You Stop Climate Change?

Fortunately, there are many ways we can stop climate change.

Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

We can reduce our carbon footprint by reducing our consumption of fossil fuels.

This can be done by having a car with better fuel economy or simply getting a hybrid, electric or hydrogen fuel cell car. Moreover, we can simply take public transit, bike more or walk more.

Carbon dioxide is absorbed by trees.

Want to reduce your carbon footprint? Plant a tree!

The reality is that trees produce oxygen and reduce carbon dioxide in the atmosphere (they even moderate ground temperatures). For this reason, tree planting is a very popular method of reducing one's carbon footprint.

There are several green tips that will help you live a greener life by reducing our Energy Consumption and use alternative energy sources like Solar, Wind energy etc.

We also need to conserve our energy. This is known as a low carbon diet and it not only promotes your health but supports local economies as well. We could reduce our meat consumption and eat more plant-based foods.Large amounts of carbon dioxide are released as a result of the meat industry. This is mainly done through the deforestation of forests in order to create livestock fields, producing the meat itself and transporting it. Switching to mainly plant-based diet is good for our own health as much as it is for the planet.

Reduce, reuse, and recycle to reduce your carbon footprint

Of course, recycling is a great way of helping the environment. Also, reducing and reusing goods is another way you can help build a sustainable future. In fact, by reducing the amount of goods you consume, you could have a cleaner and more organized home. This will cause you to have less stress and a healthier lifestyle.

We should give organizations that are trying to stop climate change our full support. If there isn't a green team in your school or a composting service in your city, do your part in creating one.
It is also crucial that environmentalists stay connected via social media so that they can easily unite for petitions, protests, and the like.

Spreading the Word

We need to share information about our planetary crisis.

We need to tell our friends and family to reduce their carbon footprint and thus stop climate change.

Simply put, we need to reduce our carbon footprint which is the total set of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions we personally cause. Often, when considering someone's carbon footprint, it is usually in terms of the amount of carbon dioxide they directly or indirectly produce.

Planting  and nurturing a tree helps reduce global warming as trees absorb CO2 and release oxygen. A mature tree sequesters up to a ton of Carbon in its life time. It also gives out enough oxygen required by two human beings. 

Planting a tree can be one of the most satisfying activities of our lives. Nurturing a tree we have planted and watching it grow and bear fruit is an extremely rewarding experience. Apart from this, here are a few more reasons to help you start planting:

As a gift: Gifting a tree to a friend, a colleague, a dear one can be a very unique experience.
    In memory of a loved one..
    To mitigate our individual carbon footprint.
    As part of our corporate social responsibility.

Sustainable Green Initiative plants fruit trees on fallow/ community lands and on lands owned by marginal and Bpl farmers.  We work with self help groups and NGOs who help us identify right beneficiaries who can continue the process of planting and nurturing trees.

At Sustainable Green Initiative, we plant trees to help the fight against climate change and also hunger, poverty and rural migration.  By planting a tree through us, you help in doing your bit to mitigate your carbon footprint and carry on the fight against hunger, poverty and climate change.
