Meanwhile, more than 720 million people are plagued with hunger. Overfishing, food wasteoverfertilization, plastic waste. Whew! That seems like a tough nut to crack, but we have some inspiration for you.

Overall, the most sustainable ways to travel are via walking, bicycle, or train. No news so far. But did you know that a flight might be still a better solution than taking your car for the next business trip? It is definitely worth comparing the different means of transport and taking the bike or train as often as possible.

 Do your decisions matter? 

92% of our carbon footprint is directly linked to our very own purchase decisions. Why is China the biggest CO2 emitter? Just check the amount of your products that are “made in China”…

Not only greenhouse gases, but also low wages, deforestation, non-recycled waste, loss of biodiversity – it is all related to the way we buy and consume.

Money makes the world go around

Literally, let your money do the work. Increase your leverage with just one good decision: choose the right bank and/or investments. In addition, plant your own trees and invest in solar energy to compensate what is difficult/impossible to reduce. 

Change to a bank which invests your money only into sustainable businesses.

Impact: substantial long-term social and environmental impact.
Effort: low, one-time, no active participation needed.
Difficulty: easy.

*Based on the average carbon footprint per person. Yours might be different. Just calculate it.
