Hello, my name is Ela and I’m from Croatia.
My family and I usually buy local and organic food which is grown in an eco-friendly way and pay attention to packaging when shopping. I make my own reusable bags and always take them to the grocery store. I try to recycle as much as I can. I usually walk or travel by buses or trains.
My parents have had our windows and doors properly insulated and we plan to switch from incandescent to compact florescent light bulbs completely. We always try to reuse and fix things instead of buying new products. I try not to be impulsive when shopping and buy things I really need and like.
I think that we could reduce our carbon footprints by recycling more at school and that we should spend less on electricity and heating by turning them off when they are not necessary.
I think that we should always appreciate nature more than technology.
