This year has been a big year for world politics, with many of the upsets and upheavals that took place people are now more than ever examining their place on the place we call home, Earth. It’s no surprise that the world is changing. Scientists are by and large in agreement that it is more important than ever to find ways in which to reduce our strong dependence on carbon based fuels. It is just a fact of life that nothing can last forever. But in many ways it seems that the average American consumer is still in the dark when it comes to the little things that can be done every day to make strides at reducing individual carbon footprints. While we all hear about companies and organizations that have made sweeping attempts to go green the truth is that the average person on the street does not actually have a real clue how to accomplish this.Many people believe that going green takes a large amount of effort, such as doing away with electricity, gas and other things that make modern life convenient in favor of solar energy and basically going back to nature and off the grid. The truth is that there is a gentle medium that can be struck on the day to day level that can ensure that we all are doing everything we can for the environment and in the long run for the future of our following generations.

Limit Your Use of Paper and Petroleum Products

When it comes to the most simple lifestyle change you can make it is actually a pretty easy choice. Imagine going to all those cook outs, picnics and family reunions. Usually this involves buying paper or plastic plates and cups so that you can easily dispose of them at the end of your good time. Instead of opting for the environmentally harmful trappings of a picnic culture, instead opt for more sustainable options such setting aside plates that can be used exclusively for outdoor occasions. While it may be less hassle to throw away the plates using dishware can be easily accommodated by bringing along a Tupperware or other such container to store the dirty plates. The same can be said for disposable paper products such as napkins and towels. By using cloth napkins, you not only elevate the ambiance of your affair, but also save several trees in the process. Being green does not take much effort, just a little extra planning.

Consider Changing Your Preferred Mode of Travel

In America We all love our cars, but many times this love affair with autos can mean big problems for the environment. Many states have already noticed the problem the over congestion of cars and motor vehicles can cause to the the city infrastructure and have instituted incentives for car pooling and ride sharing. This can only go so far, it is important for private citizens to take steps to avoid large carbon footprints as well. Imagine all those times that you and your friends have planned big trips to go see the big game or to go to your favorite concert and have taken multiple cars. A more economical and a safer option would be to consider using charter buses. Not only do charter buses remove the hassle of having to coordinate car trips and the headaches of parking and other problems that come about from private transportation, but they also are better from the environment at large. Charter buses also make it easier to have larger groups get together. When taking separate cars you do not have the benefit of being able to interact with your entire group. By using charter buses you reduce road congestion while being able to fraternize with your friends before and after the event.

There is an old song that sates it is not easy to be green, but no more than ever it is becoming easier and easier to become green in your daily life, by taking small steps to ensure that any person is able to make their day to day life mores sustainable and green.
