Home energy use is one of the biggest sources of carbon dioxide emissions. According to the World Energy Council, heating and cooling accounts for almost half of your annual energy use.
A typical passenger car releases about 4.7 metric tons of carbon dioxide per year. This number can vary based on the car’s fuel type, fuel economy, and the number of kilometers / miles driven per year.
Food is the largest source of household carbon emissions, accounting nearly 50% of them.
Meat products have larger carbon footprints per calorie than grain or vegetable products because of the inefficient transformation of plant energy to animal energy.
Organic food typically requires 30-50% less energy during production but requires one-third more hours of human labor compared to typical farming practices, making it more expensive.
AIR TRAVEL EMISSIONS
Air travel accounts for 11 percent of all transportation-related carbon dioxide emissions in the world.
According to some estimations, about 20,000 planes are in use around the world, serving three billion passengers annually. By 2040, more than 50,000 planes could be in service.
Our EMISSION ELIMINATION service will directly reduce these emissions.
REDUCE WHAT YOU CAN, ELIMINATE WHAT YOU CAN'T
Everyone has a responsibility to reduce their individual carbon footprint, and there are lots of ways to do so.
The "Three Rs rule": Reduce, Recycle, Reuse
Reduce: Use less air conditioning and heating in the home. Turn off lights you’re not using and when you leave the room. Replace incandescent light bulbs with compact fluorescent or LED ones. Buy products with minimal packaging to reduce waste. Drive less or use carpooling.
Recycle: Recycle paper, plastic, newspapers, glass, and aluminum cans.
Reuse: Use reusable items such as thermoses for your daily coffee or plastic containers for water and other cold beverages rather than disposable ones.
