Now more than ever, it has been important to think about the impact of your environmental footprint.
Every day we are faced with the potential grim reality of what could happen if we don't act right away to reduce our environmental impact on the world around us. Headlines scream out to us about the longest drought in history, devastating storms, logged rain forests and rising seas. It has become patently clear that each individual now has a personal responsibility to ensure that they minimize their own environmental footprint, so that we as a civilization don't get stamped out by our own thoughtlessness.
The largest issue that we face today is that of Global Warming. Global Warming is the increase of temperatures around the world. This consequence has led to a significant increase in natural disasters and temperamental weather patterns. Scientists have contributed the cause of Global Warming to carbon emissions arising from the use of fossil fuels (such as oil, gas and coal) to generate energy, more commonly known as the "Greenhouse effect".
In response to this growing problem industries have developed technology for renewable resources to replace the impact of fossil fuels on the environment. This means that the everyday consumer can now make a significant contribution to stemming their own environmental footprint. In Australia, greener, cleaner and more sustainable energy resources are now available. New incentives from the Australian Government will now provide rebates to encourage renewable energy use, making now the perfect time to rethink your household energy options.
Companies around the world have attempted to appeal to the growing conscience of the world which has awakened to the realities facing our future. Consumers are now targeted with new 'green' products and options never seen before. Things like carbon free products, recyclable bags, electric cars, bio-fuel and carbon off-setting. Often making the right choice can be difficult and confusing. The everyday person is left thinking, what can I do to help?
