There are ways that you can reduce your impact. You can consider alternative modes of transport. Instead of driving to work every day, buy yourself a nice bicycle. Alternatively, trains and buses can reduce your carbon footprint.

Remember this whenever you shop. Reducing food waste, and cutting out plastic that goes into landfills, is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint.
