Here are 3 Ways You Can Reduce Your Carbon Footprint:
Take Your Old Electronics to an E-Waste
It can be so simple and easy to throw your old electronics into the trash with the rest of your waste. However, do NOT throw your old electronics in the trash. Many of the materials used in making electronics can be reused. The best way to dispose of them is to take them to your local E-Waste, Recycler or Donate it. You can go here and enter your zip code to find an E-Waste near you, or you can visit your local Best Buy to recycle your electronics.
Skip Expedited Shipping & Use Standard Shipping
Expedited shipping can lead to an environmental cost because it may take more cars, trucks, planes or boats to deliver them. It can also lead to an increase in packaging waste, which researchers have found is adding more congestion to our cities, pollutants to our air, and cardboard to our landfills. Plan ahead so you don't have to rely on expedited shipping.
Cut Back on Streaming
A large amount of online traffic is consumed by streaming, including movies and music. Netflix alone consumes 15% of the world's internet traffic. Try downloading your movies, shows and playlists that you know you love and will be indulging in over and over.
