BAD Climate Change

Climate change is one of the biggest threats to our world and human life on earth.
I think everybody needs to be more aware of how they are contributing towardsclimate change. The main contributors are travel, food and business. So next time you do something stop and think about how you could reduce your carbon footprint and stop climate change!!!!!!!!!!!

***Eco-footprint Diary This Weeks Update***

This week:

Rinsing glasses- Not rinsing my glasses is just what I do now I can't imagine living any different - Goal 1 - ACHIEVED

Buying more Eco-friendly stuff- I have been doing well I am trying to get into a habit of saying no to plastic bags.

Recycling more- I now recycle everything that is recyclable!!!

*Class Worm Farm*

Yay we have started our own class run school worm farm!

In our worm farm we are going to start collecting the schools compost and feeding it to the worms so we can make worm juice and make a profit for our school.
In our class we have started recycling paper to go into the worm far so we can have a healthy happy worm farm.


****UPDATE*****Eco-footprint Diary

So it is my second week of trying to reduce my carbon footprint and I think I did pretty good so here are my results:

Not rinsing glasses- Yay as far as I can remember I have not rinsed a single glass which is cool because soon it will just become 2nd nature not to rinse my glass.

Using more Eco-friendly bags ETC.: Over the last week I think my family has only used about 2-3 plastic bags!

Recycling more: I have improved my recycling habits and now check to see whether things are recyclable before getting them!

UPDATE Eco. Footprint Diary

Earlier on my blog I put on a post about my Eco. footprint. Here is an update of how I am going.

1. I don't think I have been rinsing my glasses because I have been drinking out of plastic bottle that I am reusing!

2. I have convinced my parents that we need to start living sustainably and on their last grocery trip they only used Eco. bags and a cardboard box to carry the groceries in!
