We’re using earth x 1.6 🌍

Here’s how to reduce that.

Our planet Earth is a remarkable and unique place, providing us with an incredible diversity of life, resources, and natural wonders. However, the way we humans are living is having a significant impact on our planet. In fact, according to the Global Footprint Network, we are currently using the Earth’s resources at a rate that is 1.6 times faster than it can regenerate.

This means that we are depleting our natural resources and damaging our environment at an unsustainable rate.

However, there are many things we can do to reduce our personal footprint and help preserve our planet for future generations.

One of the most significant ways we can reduce our personal footprint is by making changes to our daily habits and lifestyle. Here are some simple yet effective steps we can take:

Reduce energy consumption

One of the biggest contributors to our environmental impact is our energy consumption. By making small changes such as turning off lights and unplugging appliances when not in use, using energy-efficient light bulbs and appliances, and adjusting the water heater, we can significantly reduce our energy use.

Reduce water consumption

Water is a precious resource, and we can all do our part to conserve it. Simple changes like turning off the tap while brushing our teeth, fixing leaks, taking shorter showers, and using a bucket to collect water while waiting for the shower to warm up can all make a big difference.

Reduce waste

Our waste has a significant impact on the environment. By reducing, reusing, and recycling, we can minimize our waste and conserve resources. This includes using reusable bags, bottles, and containers, composting food waste, and properly disposing of hazardous materials. We encourage you to return glass bottles and jars for reuse by our suppliers, and check out our composting kit suitable for anyone and any size of home.

Eat a diverse diet

The food we eat has a significant impact on the environment, with animal agriculture being a significant contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, deforestation, and water pollution. Some of the problems we see today with soil, for instance, come from huge mono-cropping practices by large farming corporations – so if we, as consumers, start to eat a more diverse diet, then there is more reason for more diverse crops to be farmed, thereby improving soil qualities.

Support clean energy

Support the development of clean energy by advocating for renewable energy policies, investing in renewable energy, and choosing clean energy options such as solar and wind power. Did you know that 40% of our deliveries are done by electric bike or vehicle? And happily, over 75% of Kenya’s power is renewable!

Reduce travel emissions

Travel is another significant contributor to our environmental impact. By using public transportation, carpooling, cycling, and walking, we can reduce our carbon footprint and help reduce air pollution.

These are just a few of the many steps we can take to reduce our personal footprint and help preserve our planet for future generations. Let’s all work together to make small changes in our daily lives, reduce our impact and create a better future for ourselves and the planet!!
