America's Carbon Footprint and How to Mitigate the Effects
For her senior project, Maddy Hwang is attempting to live a week creating minimal to no waste and would like to provide some tips for you all so you can also participate. Her goal is to show that little individual changes can build up to make a big difference. Her waste-free week is April 8-12. Here are my tips for minimizing personal waste.
Keep your lights turned off and electronics unplugged as much as you can.
Always carry around a reusable water bottle.
Try to eat less meat and unpackaged foods.
Avoid one use plastic.
Walk/Bike/Carpool/Bus instead of driving personal vehicles.
Take cold showers and turn the water off while washing your body/hair.
Dispose of recycling and compost accordingly.
