After attending the OYW Summit, a group of Siemens Ambassadors launched Green Year, an initiative to reduce overconsumption. They believe that reducing your own consumption can be the most efficient way to reduce your carbon footprint and greenhouse gas emissions.
What you can do:
Take the Green Year Challenge, a commitment not to buying any new products for yourself, except consumables, for one year.
Instead of buying new products, re-use, buy second-hand, repair, rent, make things yourself and more.
You can then track your impact with an impact counter.
How many Green Days have they achieved so far?
One Green Day is a day without over-consumption, per person.
