First off, buying local products is so much better than ordering products from Amazon. Products from Amazon usually need to travel a really long way to be delivered to your home; for example, it usually has to be shipped overseas and then also driven to your house. Both transporting vehicles use fossil fuels. This releases CO2 in the air, polluting the world even more. But when buying local products, you save so much energy and you cut a huge amount of greenhouse gas emissions and when talking about food, it is fresh and of a better quality. It is simple. Avoid buying food transported from the other end of the world or even the other end of Europe.
Also, when going shopping, walk there or go by bus and also try to stop using your car when travelling to places. Using a local bus helps save so much energy. It brings us one step closer to getting rid of global warming. Otherwise take a tram and easily travel to your destination with a couple of stops on the way. This way, you might even be able to avoid traffic. Everyone says they want to help cut greenhouse gas emissions but end up not changing anything about their lifestyle. Now you can. With a step on the bus or tram to a local store, you can make a difference and help reduce greenhouse gases in the world. You can make an impact on the world you are living in.
