How does your carbon footprint impact climate change

How does your carbon footprint impact climate change

Deepen the home carbon footprint.
All households had a share of the carbon footprint, which is taken into account from the daily energy used for fixtures and appliances, down to the main material. While others may limit their track, these people prefer to ride bicycles or go on weekends, dry their clothes outside the house, instead of using a dryer; Open your window to use natural ventilation instead of using ACU, and they are smart buyers, buying energy-efficient appliances.

As we are now gradually experiencing climate change, which is obviously a consequence of greenhouse gas emissions, this disturbing environmental impact is believed to persist if we do not take preventive measures. Extreme confidence is that climate change is almost impossible to return if it continues to deteriorate, and environmental protection organizations are calling on the government, the policy and the corporation to take aggressive measures to solve these problems, and also to persuade them to struggle with the problems arising from ours. Own house, really collective decisions will create positive results. In addition, those who are planning to build a new house, renovate their homes and acquire real estate, should ensure energy efficiency as the main principle of house designs and property choice rather than concentrating only on aesthetics. Along with this, the purchase of household goods and basic goods, such as food, clothing, household appliances, and electrical devices, should be conducted carefully and consider items that have zero or fewer signs of carbon footprints.


The construction of energy-efficient housing should not be costly, the designer and builder simply need to think about an innovative and sustainable approach. These include the use of high-grade insulation, passive cooling, and heating, maximum use of daylight, installation of energy-saving windows, switching to energy-saving lamps and the corresponding orientation of the building. According to the report on sustainable development and mitigation of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, "Considering that energy efficiency as a guideline in the construction of new homes leads to a reduction in electricity costs ... and a reduction in GHG emissions," this reliable approach will mean Not only Financial savings on operations and maintenance but also to reduce the carbon footprint from the increase is steep. In addition, the use of renewable energy sources such as wind power, solar energy, hydropower and other natural renewable energy sources is a positive approach to carbon offsetting because there are various local areas in which there are rich and cheaper renewable energy sources and Owners can also solar panels on the roof of their roofs to maintain their power requirements.


The purchase and use of a certified energy-saving home appliance are as important as choosing an energy-efficient home. Since household appliances take away a huge amount of electricity, in fact, it has a relatively high percentage of electricity bills. It is very important to note that several types of devices increase their energy needs and reduce their performance as they age, such as a refrigerator, freezer, and ACU; Accordingly, it is advisable to replace them with a new one. On the other hand, other types of devices are still able to work well even in old age, such as entertainment devices and computers, however, despite the fact that some devices still work well, for some reason some people have a tendency to buy new one Goods, perhaps because their instruments are not as effective as new ones, while others are tired of bringing their equipment to shops for repairs or they are tempted to buy the latest model that has practically a lot of interests valued functions. Unfortunately, these habits often acquire and bury an even better device that does not help, it only adds to the carbon footprint of the house, as this entails a relative amount of energy for the production of this new device, and also creates direct air pollution during production,


Essential household items, such as food, furniture, household products and transport, are not exempt from responsibility for carbon dioxide emissions. Of course, people regularly buy basic goods in supermarkets and shopping centers, and the fact that these products come from another region or can be imported from different countries require a relative amount of energy to transport these products. That's why people are invited to buy locally produced products. In addition, people used a different mode of transportation on their way to workplaces and schools, the choice of more environmentally friendly and energy efficient vehicles, as well as the use of mass transit, is the best choice to reduce carbon emissions per person. While some of the famous and well-designed urban and urban neighborhoods have developed apartments and residential buildings with high density in the immediate vicinity of the central business district, these urban areas, therefore, encourage people to use bicycle and pedestrian paths.


As a rule, the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions must begin in our own home, this requires an awareness of each choice and its corresponding environmental impact, as well as the use of a consistent ideal approach. If everyone can participate in this modern challenge since this collective effort will positively prevent climate deterioration. Participation of several groups of the population is really not enough because we practically need all efforts to change the situation and save the environment.
