Cool Tips to Minimize Our Environmental Footprint

In our journey towards a greener planet, the choices we make every day significantly influence our environmental impact. Remarkably, the United Nations states that two-thirds of all emissions are linked to decisions made at the household level. This highlights how powerful our individual actions can be. From the food we let go to waste, the energy we consume, to the plastics we use and discard, every action counts. Hear CREW Co-Founder Jo-DeVincenzi share  some effective ways she’s reducing her ecological footprint and making a meaningful difference.

 Refusing Single-Use Plastics

Single-use plastics persist in ecosystems, polluting our oceans and landscapes and harming wildlife. These plastics, derived from non-renewable petroleum, are a severe threat to environmental health:

  • Reject Plastic Packaging: Opt for products with minimal or no plastic packaging.
  • Choose Reusables: Bring your own bags, bottles, and containers.
  • Recycle and Advocate: Engage in recycling efforts and support policies that reduce plastic use.

By embracing these habits, we can significantly cut down on plastic waste and protect our environment.
