And to engage others:
Reduce The Footprint
1. Get Political
“Real change happens at the government level and here in the US we are fortunate to have a say. The burden of climate change can’t just fall on the shoulders of consumers. Corporations need to be held responsible for their actions and this will only happen through the right laws and regulations. Your dollar and voice matters,” says Natasha, who takes to her stories on @theconsistencyproject to share facts about climate change.
"Join a local Buy Nothing group on Facebook as a place to offload items that no longer serve you, and find secondhand things that you've been looking for,” says Sabs, who shares her thoughts on all things sustainable, from the sharing economy to industry tea, on her YouTube channel.

3. Get involved in your community
“Organize a cleanup or work together with like-minded individuals to create new environmental ordinances,” says Monica, who, as an active voice in the sustainability community, inspires like-minded individuals every day.
