The practical ways to reduce your carbon footprint (that actually work)

Want to know how to reduce your carbon footprint? It’s more complicated than you may imagine

In the fight for climate preservation, a growing number of people are planning to relieve the earth of more carbon-chugging entities by abstaining from reproduction – saving the planet a tidy 58.6 tonnes of carbon a year in the process. But we hear comparatively less extreme recommendations all the time: go vegan (or at the very least, flexitarian), take trains instead of planes, browse the rails of secondhand shops instead of Primark.

Tweaks at the individual level can only go so far, and the onus should be on vast, powerful industries to curb pollution, as well as governments to take urgent and radical action on cutting our reliance on fossil fuels. This means joining an activist group or petitioning your local politician are a couple of the best ways you can take action on climate.
