Lower Your Carbon Footprint This Summer
With rising global temperatures and environmentalists seeming to make a lot more sense, do you find yourself at a loss for what you can do to help? On average, every person in the United States has a carbon footprint of 16 tons (4x the average global citizen’s amount). Yes, that number sounds daunting and hard to fix. But, scientists continue to prove that it is not too late for us to make a change for the better. So, although small steps may not seem like they make a difference, they actually can go a long way.
